Welcome to the Marcus Julian blog site! I write stories that are alien, bizarre and horrifying, yet always original and unexpected. I do not write about vampires, werewolves or fairies, and even though my tales may be surreal and nightmarish, I strive to make the emotions true-to-life and the reactions of the characters believable. I take my work seriously, and my standards are high. So please join me on a trek into the dark side of life, where death is just a breath away, and powers beyond the scope of human-kind lie in wait with cold fury and desperate hunger.
