The Black Blade

By Alan Scott

Fantasy, Horror, Short stories | eBook


‘The Black Blade’ is taken from a book of short stories called 'Tales of Solomon Pace' and tells of Solomon's encounter with the vampyre, Black Blade. One is a suave, powerful, dangerous, and sadistic cold-blooded killer. The other will finally meet his match. I wrote this short story in response to a number of people who kept telling me to “admit it; Solomon Pace really is a vampyre”. After reading this tale, you will be in no doubt where Solomon stands on the vampyre issue.



Alan Scott was born and raised on the West Coast of Scotland, and returns regularly to top up his accent. He joined the RAF in 1989 and travelled the world, where he met the wicked and the witless, as well as the kind and thoughtful. He left in 2001. Having been a lifelong avid reader of dark fantasy and good (really bad) pulp fiction, he finally decided to conquer his dyslexia and try writing his own, using his treasured homeland and love of music for inspiration. With the help of a proofreader in Texas, USA, and an illustrator from Berlin, Germany, he has created 'The Storm Series', which currently consists of a trilogy of novels and two books of short stories. He is fan-friendly and welcomes all comments and reviews of his work. Search Facebook for Echoesofastorm for his homepage, or visit his website www.alankscott.com Alan's greatest writing achievement so far is to have one of stories "Deadly Tap of a Cane" chosen by WorldReader for use by them. This charitable organisation (http://www.worldreader.org) aims to help spread ebooks and literacy in developing countries. The way they work is that they take tablets and kindles and they load them up with ebooks and learning materials, and then they send them to schools in developing countries. They're a really great organisation and are backed by all the big publishing houses. He still cannot help but smile when he sees that his work has been downloaded in as faraway places as Japan and Brazil.
