Dark Things Exist in Forgotten Places . . .

Things we try to forget, things we dismiss and hide from, things that hunger for a chance to make us scream.

Once They Were Worshipped, Warded and Bound.

Now we pretend they don't exist, we say they are myths and nightmares. And this angers them.

Fear Exists in Us All, We Manage These Fears, But. . .

There are fears, ancient and dark, embedded so deep, below our modern minds, that we turn from their memory, until we are confronted with them...

I Write About the Forgotten, Feared Things, The Darkness and The Blood.

Some of my works warn of these fears, others embrace those lost in these fears, others call these fears forth.

I am Jeffrey Batchelder, a writer of stories about the dark. Dark places, dark people, dark things and how this dark affects us. Some of my stories are about vampires, old and hateful creatures with a desire to damage the world. Some of my stories are about people, acting lost and becoming distorted by the things the they have experienced.
