HO'M,O - Henry O'Malley, Omega
Henry O'Malley, Omega — Hank to those who know him, is about to have his world turned upside down.
You see, Hank is just a nice boy on the verge of becoming a man trapped in the quietude of Sparrows Hollow, West Virginia. The year is 1956 and Hank is in his senior year at the Cavanagh Gap Regional High School. Not that he has much to look forward to that he isn't already doing. His life thus far is limited to the mundane existence of school work and the general store he runs with his mother in Sparrows. His Daddy ain't been around much since Hank was a boy, when his daddy went off to the World War in Europe and the military just sorta lost him. No body to bury, nothing to grieve over.
Having idolized his father from a early age, Hank hasn't been the same since.
Yet the scent of his father lingers around Sparrow's, like a long ago caress he recalls from his father's hand when he was a boy. His mama says that's just "the spirit of his daddy lookin' out for him."
Only Hank ain't so sure.
Then there's the boys from his high school football team. Ruffians to the core. They're the kind of boys that girls want to be with and other boys want to run with. Iconically beautiful and fearsome all in one. These boys were once Hank's childhood friends - now scattered to the far corners of the school running like a pack of wolves - given the school mascot being a wolf, the irony isn't lost on Hank. But Halloween is fast approaching, Hank's eighteenth birthday, and the bad boys have cornered Hank and ominously informed him, "It's time..."
Just as Hank is getting his bearings with these boys, this pack of bad boys, a mysterious visitor arrives in the store stirring up trouble. It seems Mama and Daddy weren't as normal as Hank thought all along. This new stranger threads his way into Hank's already upside down world and his boys ain't too happy about it. The tang of anger and testosterone fill the air in Sparrows and the makings of a pack blood feud is about to ignite. Just as Hank feels he is out of his element, he discovers that something he resigned to in his past my not be as he thought it was. He may just have gained a powerful ally to take on this new threat.
A slightly scary, over the top, story about hormonally charged werewolves, powerful witches and erotically charged boy on boy love-action. A gay take on those classic movies of the golden age of classic horror monsters. What could be sexier?
First of a erotic horror novella series, episodic in nature.
SA COLLINS - BIO
SA Collins hails from the San Francisco Bay Area where he lives with his (legal) husband, their daughter and, wonder of all wonders, a whirlwind of a granddaughter. Their home is filled with laughter and love. A classically trained singer, and a theater actor for many years (under another name), Mr. Collins is all about the story telling and the spell a good yarn can weave for an audience.
Mr. Collins specializes in character study work. It is more important for him as an author that the reader comes away with a greater understanding of the characters, and the reasons they make the decisions they do, rather than the situations they are in. It is this deep dive into their manners, their experiences and how they process the world around them that make up the body of Mr. Collins' work.
This is Mr. Collins foray into writing but, as with all his creative endeavors, he leaps right in and figures it out as he goes along. It's been a great combination thus far so why break a winning formula?
