About This Website

Enter into the frightful world of the macabre, where things are not always as they first seem. Open the gates to those obscure regions of your soul where fear and hidden desires wreak havoc with the imagination. I bid you welcome to Tales of Dark Romance and Horror, the official home for the fiction of A.D. Vick. 

In the days ahead, I will, on a bi-weekly basis, be featuring an excerpt from one of my pieces of short fiction, starting with those contained in my first book, Tales of Dark Romance and Horror, continuing with the second, The Darkness Beyond the Misty Veil: More Tales of the Macabre, and beyond. Exciting times are approaching. I hope you will come back here to visit often.

I'd like to give special thanks to the following: 

To Lady-Moriendistock for allowing me to use her beautiful and most romantic photo at the top of this page. Visit her gallery here.

I offer my gratitude to Miramariann and Morten Marius Hansen for gracing the cover of my book with their wonderfully romantic photo. You can check out Mira's many fabulous photographs by visiting her Facebook page

My gratitude also goes to Jeff Blevens for allowing me to use his magnificent photo to grace the cover of The Darkness Beyond the Misty Veil: More Tales of the Macabre.

Last but certainly not least, I would like to offer words of appreciation to the Insomniac, who not only offered me sound advice on various technological problems I encountered, but especially for helping to make things fit here. Follow this link to The Insomniac's Attic,

Tales of Dark Romance and Horror:


Tales of Dark Romance and Horror is a collection of short stories and novelettes that share very human themes; romantic love, forbidden desire, seduction, and the struggle against one's personal demons. Then again, there are demons here of a different sort as well. These inhabit realms that exist outside the human experience, beyond that which is seen by the naked eye. Indeed, they inhabit the dwelling places of the dead and manifest as alluring spirits as well as loathsome, destructive entities. There are also monsters and dark beings that walk among us in the modern world we inhabit. These are the stuff of folklore and legend. They can be darkly seductive and yet, oh so deadly. We speak here of monsters that lurk by the forest in the murkiest swamp lands, and we speak of the undead, blood-thirsty vampires that walk among us during the dark hours of the night. All this and more is contained within the fables presented on the pages of this book.

Tales of Dark Romance and Horror is available in paperback and ebook form at the Lulu bookstore.
It is also available at Amazon Dot Com where it can be found in Kindle format, Barnes & Noble,
and other similar vendors.
