An age of unfettered warfare will come finally to an end, but it won’t be peace that ends it. Across a blighted landscape of dying kingdoms, a handful of serious men track a killer as old as the mountains. A part of some cosmic menagerie of survivors, this ‘Last Monster‘ may hold the key to finding the rest of his kind. And when united, the hidden knowledge that might allow mankind to live past its appointed end just might be learned.
But the end of the age is a programmed certainty, and the longevity that is sought might require more sacrifice than any realize. Indeed, the ultimate survival of mankind may be rooted in its near total destruction, and the restless dead are ready to oblige that need.
For those of you who like your fiction greasy, this might be for you. The Pallid Waste is the first installment of Things Dead and Dying and is a tale of reinvention through destruction. It’s gory, bleak and fun, at least for those who enjoy dark fantasy and horror. I hope you’ll try it out and post a review. Thanks.
Watch for book 2, A Broken Coast, in June 2012.
I’m an aerospace programmer and process engineer. My wife Michelle is way too good for me and I put her through the ringer. Our sons, Titus Frank and Victor Spartacus, help me brutalize her psyche and wreck her house.
I’ve written three books, a series called Things Dead and Dying. The first is available at Amazon, the second is soon to be released and the third is going through the hell of editing.
I’d like to thank Marjorie for the opportunity to contribute to her blog. I’m too lazy and tech dumb to figure any of this out, so she has taken pity and allowed me a place to find a voice. Cheers Marjorie!

About Marjorie Kaye (me)
I graduated from UCLA, worked briefly as an actress before raising a family in Reno, Nevada. I spent several years casting film and television projects, and later taught English in the Los Angeles public school system. Needing to escape from the daily swirl of paper airplanes, gum wads and students texting while ignoring my threats, I decided to write a horror novel.
The result is “Devil‘s Fire,”a tale inspired by a family story. “Virtual Enterprises, Inc., my second novel is science fiction. Social satire, soap opera and morality tale, it deals with life after death in a virtual reality computer program. My sci fi blog is marjoriekayesbabylondreams.com. Currently, I’m writing a third novel, “Six Tourists Who Were Not Human.” Here’s the link to Devil’s Fire : http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007A562FK
Here’s the link to my first blog: marjoriekayesbabylondreams.com
Since I first wrote this page, I decided to rewrite Babylon and change the first person into third. I plan to post a prologue soon on my babylondreams site. The process has put me behind on posts for both blogs. They won’t be as frequent but I will continue to post.

I’m very interested in what inspires writers in terms of books, background experiences–what they read as kids–etc. And also readers–what moves them and makes them want to keep reading. If anyone has anything to share on this, please let me know and perhaps you’ll consider letting me post it. My favorite genres are sci fi and horror but I like anything that’s a good read. I’m of course using my blog to promote my book but also because we’re all here for the reason that we love the written word. It reaches across time and connects us to hearts and minds. My email is email@example.com
I subscribe to Netflix. It seemed like a good idea, all those movies available for ten dollars a month, but have you noticed how few really good films you can access? I have a number of books I’m reading but my attention span being what it is, I decided to scroll through Netflix offerings; I explored both the horror and the science fiction sections. There’s not very many good ones I haven’t already seen, however I did select some for my instant queue. In filling my queue I used the Netflix rating. When they say something’s less than two stars, trust me, you need to take that seriously. Everything I picked is at least a two starrer. In the interest of keeping this blog current, with new posts once or twice a week, I plan to take a look at the horror and science fiction offerings from Netflix and post my subjective opinion. Of course when there’s something new, that’s even better.
