The Pseudopod That Rocks The Cradle by Tim Mendees

An undesirable pregnancy leads to an unnatural birth of unsettling proportions. An individual’s responsibility to nourish ancient trees and dense foliage quickly becomes an inordinate method to satisfy a peculiarly organic hunger. A discovered scrawled message warns of a disturbing existence lurking within a tenant’s cellar. One’s phobia of creepy-crawlies develops into a sadistic lifestyle, now these insectoid species embark on a malevolent revenge.

Author Tim Mendees composes eighteen cosmic horror tales of the weird and the unusual in his short story collection titled The Pseudopod That Rocks The Cradle. From imprisoned evil gods yearning to be freed to rumors of Bog monsters dwelling within sacred grounds, these Lovecraftian laced gems are worthy enough to make Cthulhu and The Elders proud. Mendees uses fear-induced scenarios as a platform for cosmic horror often resulting in the old adage “you reap what you sow.”

Capitalizing on that near and dear quote of “fear of the unknown,” this fictional voyage of chilling metamorphosis and unearthly demonic possession shimmers like a newly discovered protoplasm. Mendees cradles the reader into a false sense of security all the while revealing a true Escher type of fictional impossibility constructed around a surreal environment. Shadowy forms, whispered lullabies and supernatural creatures lurk within the undergrowth of these ravenous imaginative pages.
I strongly recommend this diverse Brothers Grimm style of morbid fiction. Each and every story possess its own terrifying tendril appendage from this talented intellect. Not for the squeamish however for the voyeurism of the very strange. If there’s one thing the reader will take away from this book it’s…”DoNT LeT ThEM In!! DoNt OpEn tHe DoOr!!”
