Welcome to D. Krauss' website. Tread carefully. Things roll underfoot.


The Twin Towers are still smoldering when those odd little anthrax letters show up, killing a few people here and there. Some nutcase, everyone thinks, but it’s not – it’s a setup, a precursor to a massive biological attack that leaves the Northeast a quarantined wasteland.

Campus policeman John Rashkil, trapped inside the Zone, chooses to keep doing his job, adding judge and executioner to his resume. He builds a jury-rigged life from what he can salvage and tries to help his teenage son survive this new, Byzantine America.

But a growing sense of futility shatters his confidence, and he is unprepared when a rabble army seeks to break quarantine and pour into the uninfected lands.

Based on an Irish legend of the same name, Partholon is a brutal look at how the just and the civilized respond to anarchy.

The Last Man In The World Explains All

Ten tales of the mundane, of a universe askew, where things are slightly off:

1. The Last Man in the World Explains All: double check your math.
2. Ghost Woods: shot an arrow into the air, and where it landed...
3. Invisibility: don't attract attention. Just don't.
4. Not With a Bang: this is how the world ends.
5. Do-Over: the problem with time travel is you.
6. An Unfortunate Choice of Words: Aliens. Man, they just don't get it.
7. The World Without Souls: not the most pleasant of places.
8. Reparations: my, how things change.
9. Inherit the Earth: a race, or an idea?
10. An Inappropriate Response: Humans. Man, they just don't get it.

Real vampires. Tasteful dismemberments. And delightful shivers, from ten old-fashioned horror stories:
  • The Moonlight in Genevieve's Eyes: unrequited love. Tragic. Just tragic.
  • Choice: second chances are rare. Especially when you work for a vampire.
  • The Flowers in Mr. Williams' Garden: neighborhood watch, ghost style.
  • Cistern: zombies are horrible, until they hire you.
  • The Elvish Woman: lovers who steal your soul. Literally.
  • The Trumpet Inside the Warehouse: no one can hear you scream.
  • King of the Bears: be victorious, or be dinner.
  • Angel Eyes: man's best friend, when you forget your cross and garlic.
  • The Absence of Land: sell the farm, pay the consequences.
  • Face to Face: Lane really, really wants to meet his birth mother.

So, grab a crucifix, a shotgun, and come on in. But, leave a clearly marked trail. It's dark in here.
