9780615845951: Yorick

Poor Roberta. She's aging, has lost everyone she's ever loved, and now she lives out her sad, lonely days gorging on bad convenience store food and faded memories of happier times. She wants nothing more than to join her loved ones in the afterlife, but then a gruesome discovery along the banks of the Merrimack River changes everything. Roberta's life takes a sinister turn, and she begins to believe that she'll never be alone again. Is she spiraling into madness, or is she's being manipulated by a power far beyond her understanding? Yorick is a creepy tale about a lonely retiree who finds a new friend in an unexpected place. Critics have called this modern Gothic story the kind one reads for "chills and thrills," and have likened it to the works of Edgar Allan Poe. It is certain to disturb and entertain.

About the Author:

I snuck The Tommyknockers by Stephen King out of the library when I was eleven years old. Despite the nightmares, I'd stay up all night reading it, partly because I was discovering that there was pleasure in terror, and partly because I was too scared to go to bed before the sun came up. It took me all summer and some of the fall to finish it, but when I did, I immediately dug up another King book. My love affair with the creepy, bizarre, and thought-provoking had officially begun. I'm the author of Brachman's Underworld and Yorick, and I've appeared on sites such as Digital Journal, Yahoo! Shine, Indie Author News, and Strange Amusements. My next title, The Button, will be published in early 2013. My background as a newspaper correspondent and freelance writer has earned me dozens of publishing credits for local news articles as well.  I was raised in Groton, Massachusetts and now reside in Lowell, Massachusetts with my wife, Jordana. I received an Associates Degree in Journalism from Middlesex Community College, and after a few years of freelance writing, I decided to go back to school. I'm now a proud member of the National Honor Society at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, where I'm studying History and English. I'm a voracious reader, avid hiker, and can't watch enough documentaries. Seriously, I have a problem. I love games too. Board games, card games, strategy games, you name it, I'll play it. I'm a pretty eclectic reader, and don't limit myself to one genre. Some of my favorite authors in no particular order are: Stephen King, John Steinbeck, Richard Adams, William Golding, Isaac Asimov, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Robert Jordan. The greatest sadness for me is that I'll never be able to write all the stories swirling through my head, or read all the masterpieces penned by all those wonderful authors out there. ~Vlad Vaslyn~

Review:

"Reminiscent of the best of the classic horror writers... Fans of the early works of Stephen King and the later works of Edgar Allan Poe will likely enjoy this. Despite being a horror novella, it is also a black comedy of sorts. Horror and humor is one of my favorite combinations and a difficult one to pull off, but Vaslyn gets it right. It's well-developed, tightly plotted story... Yorick will most certainly entertain fans of the genre." ~Fourth Street Review.

"A well-crafted tale of the macabre... Vaslyn brings the characters to life and presents the wonderful unsettled feeling we look for in a good horror yarn. Fans of the work of Stephen King will love this eerie little book, and will never look at a muddy riverbank the same way again." ~Dale T. Phillips, author of Halls of Horror and Wendigo.

"An unsettling horror novella that chronicles Roberta's descent into utter madness. Written with rich, gruesome descriptions, it's the kind of story you read for chills and thrills... Disturbing yet entertaining, somewhat reminiscent of reading the dark tales of Edgar Allen Poe... Creepy in all the right ways, Yorick is a highly enjoyable tale of grief, loneliness, and horrifying madness." ~Zigzag Timeline. 

"If you are someone who enjoys horror, the creepy and the macabre, then I highly recommend that you read Yorick. It disturbed me terribly." ~Book Maven's Picks
