The Highwaymen: Valera Vittori has been kidnapped by a band of highway robbers for ransom.

:Coming Up!:

The Glass Angel: Gothic-horror story. A decadent and sociopathic artisan creates a window with bits of cursed glass, which creates cause for regret...

Masquerade: Welcome to the Cirque du Saturne, a dark and twisted world of pagan revelry, decadence, and deceit... a world where love is passionate and vengeance is sweet. After her father's death, Lucy arrives here to perform as a trapeze artist. She falls into a deep and passionate relationship with the Ringmaster - who, later, reveals some dark secrets of his own. However, their love is not without consequence; it's consuming and controlling, destructive and desecrating. She is caught up in the Ringmaster's power struggle between himself and the circus crew- a struggle that will culminate into rape, murder, and a final ruthless revenge.
