This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Memento Mori (Latin for Reminder of Death) contains 36 of Angeline Hawkes’s speculative fiction stories. Each of these tantalizing tales remind the reader just how much death is interwoven into life. From Richard III to World War II, history and horror are blended together to give a fear-filled twist to old perspectives. In the much published, “The Foundling”, a horrific realization unfolds in an 18th century Foundling Hospital within the dirty, urban squalor of London, England. Also featured is the horror tale, “Premonitions” – a short, but terrifying story that was awarded Horror-Web’s Best of Horror-Web 2002 Contest Fiction award. In “The Heir”, a witch helps shape the course of history and gives new meaning to Queen Mary's nickname, Bloody Mary. Take a journey to Tudor England – run through the wilds of Scotland – hop aboard a space ship to Mars – But, wherever you venture, make sure you say your prayers and check behind you for vampires, ghosts and witches…because they’re all out there lurking – waiting to remind you of death.
