|Ink Stains, Volume 6|
In life, we draw many lines — between good and evil, guilt and innocence, real and unreal, life and death.
And having drawn these lines, we cross them because humanity is curious, careless, devious, and, sometimes, downright wicked.
So what happens if you cross the line? Does it change you and what is waiting on the other side?
In Ink Stains, Volume 6, ten authors explore what it means to cross the line and the price we pay to do it.
This is a collection of short stories that range from fantasy through science fiction to horror and from the fantastical to the grit of day to day life. Join writers Monica Carter, George Kelly, Alison Garsha, Ken Goldman, Elana Gomel, Christopher Locke, Morrison, Thomas Olbert, Evan Purcell, and Nicole Tanquary as they step over the line to find what waits on the other side.

All he has to do is obey and Guards were bred to obey.
When Mutter is taken to his new home, something isn’t right. There’s food and a bed but there are sounds and smells from the other cages. Things that move like nothing he’s ever encountered.
For the first time in his life, he’s afraid. Afraid of the creatures that lurk nearby. Afraid of the shots his new master is giving him.
He knows he’s supposed to obey, to always follow their rules but if he doesn’t escape, he’ll become food for one of those things in the other cages. Or worse... turn into one of them.

|The Skipton Haunting|
In 2016, John Davidson and his family moved to Skipton Road, a quiet cul-de-sac situated within the heart of a northern industrial town, in the hope of improving their lives. However, they had no idea of what evil terrors awaited them. Things appeared normal at first... apart from the pungent smell of rotten flesh in their kitchen, recurring scratch marks along the walls, and an overwhelming sense of always being watched by someone or something. Overtime, through a series of vivid nightmares and intrusive whispers, the Davidsons came to learn of a malignant menace that still dwelled within their new home – a witch named Sabina, who sought out vengeance upon those who had betrayed her in life, and an ancient demon that referred itself as "Baal". Throughout these horrific events, John struggled against his growing depression, his new reliance on alcohol, and the overall strong desire to keep his family from falling apart... which it sadly was. This terrifying period in their lives would forever haunt the Davidsons, as it did with countless other victims before them.

No-one ever knew his name, or why he killed, or why he stopped. Until now...
Lost and alone one night on the streets of London, Maddie Harper knows she shouldn't go near the abandoned house on Cathmore Road. She's heard stories about the place, about how everyone keeps away. But tonight Maddie's scared and hurt, and she's being hunted through the city's dark, rain-lashed streets. So when she sees a broken window at the back of the house, she decides she has to take the risk.
But this is no ordinary house. This house once belonged to England's most notorious killer. To a man whose true identity has remained a secret... until now.
Soon, Maddie starts to realize that something in this house is very wrong. For one thing, the basement is set out more like an old operating theater. For another, there are tattered notebooks detailing a series of gruesome medical procedures. And then there's the bell in one of the old bedrooms, which seems to ring from time to time, even though it's covered in a thick layer of dust.
Maddie is about to learn not only that the house's previous owner hid a dark secret, but also that - as she explores these old and abandoned rooms - she might not be quite so alone after all. And the truth of an English legend is about to be revealed.
