Slash and Burn Society

By ShannonMMetcalf All Rights Reserved ©

Thriller / Horror


As chilling as it sounds to see the conundrum of blood among the once stainless walls, I do not flinch. And as psychotic as the average murderer can be with his or her laughter as they shoot, stab and torture, I still do not falter. Over time I’ve learned to accept the things I cannot change and have found the courage to change the things that I could; I found that serenity.

Prologue: I Am Shane Sorinthia

You know it’s a funny thing, at least I find it funny. Narcotics Anonymous was my starting place; the birth of my sadistic ventures. They told me that I was an addict way before I even snorted my first line of coke. Heh... I remember that first trip. In fact I can recall the very moment I found that lust from a fresh kill; that...Oh that sweet release when the blood poured from the first stab wound....Ha ha!

And yet, as I said before, they called me an addict; an addict! They labeled me that when I was only fucking thirteen! But I showed them...You bet your sweet fuckin’ ass I did! I took that first mother fucker that called me a retard cause I was a bit slow in class, and I shoved my pencil deep into his fuckin’ carotid artery! Yeah...He dropped so fast; his name was Lance. Lance fucking Burbs, minus the word fucking.

Anyway, here I sit in my small cell on death row at the age of sixty eight, writing my memoir and ranting about how fuckin’ amazing it used to be to watch the life leave someone’s body. In a way I kind of thank Lance; now hear me out before you go, just hear me out. He’s the one who showed me just how erotic it is to watch the blood flow. He taught me that the pen truly is mightier than the sword, relatively speaking of course.

The point of this book is to enlighten you all to a list of murderers in which I made a pact with long ago. It’s a sort of group that will go on in history as the deadliest groups in America. It’s the Slash and Burn Society and as corny as it all sounds, there’s a fuck load of crazies in it. I was the ring leader of this grand band of blood lusting men and women. I am proud to introduce this book with a man who truly needs no introduction, but I’ll do it anyways. First off, let it be known, that he is probably one of the most innocent out of all of us.

His name is Bruce Francisco a.k.a. Blank Face. He’s a sort of...big fella’ if you ask me. Without further ado, let’s get this party started. Ha ha haaaaaa!!! (And yes, I just had to write in my laughter.)

The current date is: (October 10th, 2041).

Ben Gauger: Kudos go to Karissa, author of Elements Of Engagement, an otherwise dark and twisted tale of love and workplace intrigue, very 'Fifty Shades of Grey' to be sure, her writing style being very graphic ad otherwise sexually-charged, hence the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' reference, and as for her use of g...

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

Tanya Daigle Rusheon: This book is a long and twisty tale full of sweet romance, adorable fluff, anxiousness, trust issues, mind games, things that don't make sense until suddenly they do, heartache and reconciliation just when you need it the most. If that all sounds a bit vague, it's because I really don't want to s...

Kastril Nomenclature: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

Deleted User: You put a lot of effort into this story, and in some places the detail is lovely. The beginning is really good. There is a lot of good detail in the first paragraphs. I get a good feel for his confusion.But I am lost in the back story. I have no idea where this is going. Perhaps mention someone y...

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

Alex Rushmer: I like the intrigue that you introduce from the very beginning of the story. The idea of the girl waking up in the alley with no memory of how she got there and with injuries is very interesting. It was very well done. There were a lot of grammatical errors that need to be fixed though. I think t...

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!

Bradley Darewood: I really really really liked this. I just voted for you!The voice is flawless-- I can't write men as well as you do and I have a penis. Maybe I'm narcissistic but I particularly enjoyed the moment where he muses about how artists would do better in such a solitary job. But my favorite moment ...
