Timothy C. Hobbs – Monsters Unleashed Blog Tour


ThePumpkinSeedThe Pumpkin Seed: Amazon

“I am a drinker of human blood and an eater of human flesh, a monster dressed in the skin of a man.” So states Charles, the main character of the novel, after being infected with a virus transmitted by an insect vector.

The Pumpkin Seed opens in India near the Nepal border in the late 17th century. A commissioned officer of the East India Company is seeking a profitable new trade route into China.

Indian bandits of the Thuggie clan attempt to stop this further invasion by the British and release a plague of insects, which carry a unique virus. This organism not only infects humans, it transforms the chemical and physical nature of the host’s body. Longevity, resilience and the need to feed on human blood and flesh make the host an efficient killing machine, especially in regard to the human race.

MusicBoxSonata_coverMusic Box Sonata: Amazon

At the top of a steep cliff, a derelict church serves its congregation of dust, cobwebs, and birds roosting in the rafters. One human occupant lives there hidden in the cellar. He is cursed to never walk in the tortuous sunlight, cursed to roam the woods on the cliff at night in the form of a hideous beast struggling with the violent desire to kill while striving to preserve remnants of his own humanity.

Music Box Sonata is the second story from Once Upon a Time in Texas, a collective series of dark variations of popular fairy tales by Timothy C. Hobbs.

TheSmellofGingerThe Smell of Ginger: Amazon

It’s Halloween in Jasper, Texas and Butch and Suzy are driving with their dad to trick or treat at the strip mall and the local churches.

They didn’t count on the truck breaking down, getting lost in the woods, or coming across the ordinary old cabin, but there’s nothing ordinary about the tenants – two spinster sisters who have been waiting eternally for children to call their own.

TimothyCHobbs_photoBio: Timothy C. Hobbs (1950 – ) was born in Temple, Texas. His older brother was a lover of horror movies and literature. Tim naturally followed his brother’s lead and was seduced by all things that go bump in the night. Tim started writing horror stories in the sixth grade and has never stopped since.

The Smell of Ginger, The Pumpkin Seed and Music Box Sonata are published through Visionary Press Cooperative, where Tim is a contributing member. He has a novel coming out later this year with Angelic Knight Press.

  6. Hey, Nina! How are you doing? It’s been too long. Sorry I’ve been a stranger of late; way too many hours at the day job. Thanks for sharing about Tim. I read The Pumpkin Seed a few years ago and have never forgotten it. He’s a great writer and a good friend. I’m so glad he’s getting some notice.
    I hope 2014 has been treating you well, my friend.
