Man writes one page a day to a series of seven novels, every day, never stopping until he is finished. Horror meets modern-day Lord Of The Rings in this tale spanning 70,000 years about a twenty-four year old named Marvin and his encounters with an ancient anomaly known only as the "Harvester".
Stephen continued his stagnant, downward glare. An awkward silence soon turned pleasant as the land lord produced a series of sharp, light-hearted cackles.
