The Hexer from Salem - Satan's Books

The light of the oil lamp cast flickering patterns on the walls, creating a sense of life where there was none. The air was musty and the floor under the two men's feet was strewn with trash and fine shards of glass. A spider web wafted in the wind like a gray curtain, and eerie rattling noises came up from the bowels of the building. They were the sounds of heavy, labored breathing; at least that's how Tremayn's over-wrought imagination heard them.

He stood still. The lamp in his hand was trembling, and he had to try with all his might to fight the growing urge to turn and run as fast and as far away as he could from this cursed, sinister house. It seemed more like a giant, damp grave with each passing moment ...

In the night, clouds had risen from the sea - a dark, seething front that extinguished the full moon's pale glow and pelted the earth with a torrent of frozen rain. A gusty, ice-cold wind blew the rain sideways across the water's surface, ensuring the residents of this strip of coastline forgot it was high summer. That the nights should be warm.

The lake was like a black hole, swallowing all available light. Somewhere, not far from the boat, something dark and massive was starting to circle the small boat...

As it so often is after a storm, the ocean was calm and unnaturally smooth. It was still, and even the wind, howling the whole night along the cliff-lined coast, and the waves, bursting into white spray against the craggy rocks, had faded to nothing by sunrise. The only sounds to break the silence were the steps of three men, carefully approaching a gray-white marble cliff.

"It's here," called Mahoney out. "But also something else ..."

"Quiet!" Howard put a finger to his lips and pressed himself even closer to the wall, waiting with bated breath until the voices and steps drew closer and then faded. Only then did he dare judge it safe enough to emerge from the shadows and make his way to us carefully, crouching the entire way.

He squatted between Rolf and me, the halting, nervous movement revealing his exhaustion more than anything. Wiping the back of his hand across his brow, he pointed with his thumb behind him. "I think we can risk it," he murmured. "It's just a few blocks and it's getting dark."

The Hexer from Salem - Day of Horror

It was a scene of morbid fascination I couldn't look away from. My reflection in the mirror began to change and fall apart: My face turned brown, the skin cracking, quivering like a withered leaf in a strong, autumn wind.

I couldn't grasp what I was seeing at first. I was still holding the razor in my shaking, left hand, frozen in motion. My mouth was gaping open as if screaming in silence. My teeth had blackened and were falling out. Then, ever so slowly, the dried up skin began flaking away until I was sure I could see the bones protruding from underneath. At first a grimace, my reflection decayed into a skull, my eyes sunk into their sockets and seemed to glare back at me with satanic fury ...

There was something disturbing about this mist. The ship's crusty hull seemed to vanish into the gray mass. An odd odor wafted up from the water's surface. I leaned my hands on the railing, bent forward and tried to catch just a hint of the water. But the mist was too thick.

As I turned, I thought I sensed movement - a short, sudden twitch - as if something enormous from the gray mass was reaching out. I stared into the void. From one second to the next my heart began to pound so hard I broke into a sweat despite the cold ...

What is The Hexer from Salem?

The Hexer from Salem, a novel series in the vein of H.P. Lovecraft, was created and written almost entirely by Wolfgang Hohlbein. The epic began in 1984 in a pulp-fiction series: Ghost-Thrillers from Bastei Publishing and later as a stand-alone series under The Hexer from Salem, before it finally became available in paperback and collectors editions.

The story takes place primarily in nineteenth century London, following the chilling adventures of The Hexer, Robert Craven and, later on, his son as they encounter the Great Olds - godlike creatures hostile to humans - and their representatives on earth.

He was running for his life.

They were behind him. Though he couldn't see or hear them, he could feel them closing in. Behind him, or maybe already in front of him, somewhere in the darkness blanketing the street like a black cloud. This was their territory and they knew every step, every hiding place and every shortcut. He had a bit of a head start but he was under no illusion. They initially took him for an idiot from the countryside, a farmer terrified by the sight of a knife, the thought of fighting back not even crossing his mind. But as soon as he knocked out the teeth of one, the other three knew not to make the same mistake...

From the outside, the house looked grim and imposing. Perhaps the appearance was even a bit sinister, like those old, lonely mansions threatening danger. The blackened, decades-old facades exuding something malignant. Really, though, it was just a house forgotten a lifetime ago, alone in the woods for twice that long.

That was the outside.

Inside was unearthly. Unearthly and deadly ...
