NOCTURNAL WHISPERS: Volume I
  a series of shorts* by Dan Champagne.

Simon Diamond:
Welcome to a little tale about the happy-go-luckiest serial killer you’re ever liable to encounter. You might like Simon, but Simon isn’t so apt to like you. Join up with Simon ‘For a Day in the Life’ as he strolls through downtown Philadelphia, and spends his overnight in all-hours diner. But don’t get too close! Because if Simon says– you’re dead!

Ben Arlington:
How does an ordinary police detective deal with the dangerous world of the supernatural underground? Very, very carefully. Join Benjamin Arlington as he investigates a string of grisly murders while on the path to finding his immortal companion, Cupideau. There will be blood…

Hillary St. Claire:
What do you do when you’ve just turned eighteen, inherited a family tradition of black magic from your dead father, and just finished murdering your mother, finally gaining you their financial fortune as well? To top it off, your mentor in evil is missing, and your friends are no help at all? Well, Hillary St. Claire is about to figure that out for herself.

Molly Bethlehem:
Molly is the cutest little girl you ever could see. She’s also one of the most evil people in the world. So evil, in fact, that her talent for black magic attracts the attention of none other than the Antichrist himself. Here’s the story of the best Halloween that Molly’s ever had.

Bonus, unrelated Chapter One:
the Dark Hand of a Hundred Days:
A father abandons a son, and a son abandons a father. One war is traded for another when a sword of dark power is taken up by living hands once again. Weakness is banished in a singular display of terrible strength, dragging from the shadows the magic and monsters of the past ages. The age of myth and wonder is reborn in blood and the dust of a thousand years…
