Bloody Parchment: The Root Cellar and Other Stories

eKhaya, the digital imprint of Random House Struik, is delighted to announce the publication of Bloody Parchment: The Root Cellar and Other Stories.

Bloody Parchment: The Root Cellar and Other Stories brings a fresh crop of horror and dark literature from the most recent South African HorrorFest Bloody Parchment short story competition. From dreary subterranean chambers and angelic visitations to the many-legged horrors of alien invaders and a meeting with the Devil himself, this collection of tales offers readers the opportunity to acquaint themselves with the likes of Toby Bennett (winner), and runners-up Anna Reith and Chris Limb. Finalists include Diane Awerbuck, Simon Dewar, Zane Marc Gentis, Stephen Hewitt, Benjamin Knox, Lee Mather, Glen Mehn, S.A. Partridge, and Icy Sedgwick.

"You'll be hard pressed to find a stronger anthology of horror stories this year. There's a staggering number of original ideas and talent on display here, as well as several stand-out stories that easily hold their own against work in any genre. And most importantly, they will creep the hell out of you." - Sarah Lotz, author

    1. How to make a mini root cellar in your backyard

      Making a mini root cellar is simple enough. You'll need an empty trash can, a shovel, some rocks, straw, plywood and hammer and nails.

      But that's just the beginning because I'm also going to show you how you can protect your life and all your supplies in a crisis.

      Make sure to watch this right away...because I'm not going to be able to keep this online for long.

      The most important survival item you didn't buy

      You might have a decent stockpile, a few guns and maybe even a small garden.

      Whatever the case, none of it will save you in a crisis without THIS.

      Right now, there is just one way to still get it. And it will soon be gone as well.

      If you thought the polar vortex was bad, wait till you see this

      The drastic drop in temperature has left numerous people in pure desperation.

      You might be its next target, as meteorologists are still uncertain of what's to come. The vast majority are afraid to go outside because of the life-threatening cold, as they would risk dying from frostbite and hypothermia in a matter of minutes... and their supplies are running out fast.

      Extreme weather events have become increasingly common in recent years and from the looks of it, we are in for even more. Much, much more. Meteorologists are still uncertain if the deadly cold will also spread out to the rest of the country, so it's best to prepare RIGHT NOW, while you still have time left.
