Salute to the creative spirit!
Novelty Fiction stands for originality of concept and high quality standards. It feels great to get published knowing how much professional scrutiny and care went into our stories before their release. Editorial selection, peer review, critique, professional editing and proofreading, layout…
Even after publication, we can focus on being creative because Novelty Fiction does not keep reminding us to self-promote our works. We simply love being writers, and here’s who we are.

Suspense is thrilling. It causes vibrations like nothing else. An average reader may not realise it, but about 90% of the time, the only thing remotely leaving him/her hopelessly grasping onto the edges of a leather bound work of art is a story’s ability to shock.
I have been known to be a writer for longer than I can remember, even though this is the first time that I have been given the opportunity to have my work published. Few are those who know what I write exactly – therefore, I consider it a privilege to let you in on my little twisted piece of writing.
To me, suspense is everything and nothing. Given that the ability to horrify is undeniably more rewarding, I have chosen to use the latter more formidably than the former. I hope that you will be more horrified than the writer of “A Heart Harkened” was when she gleefully penned the ending to a truly disturbing tale.
My first several literary works were realistic, dramatic fiction. I focused on human relationships that get caught up in the funny machine called "Society." Eventually, I spent quite some time exploring the darker sides of humanity, increasingly departing from realism. I am a bohemian at heart.
The work I am presenting here is from my early period - realistic drama. "Martha's Underworld" was not only dusted off, but thoroughly revised for the occasion.
