What if all the evil happening lately wasn’t just because of evil people? What if the militant political partisans, and racists, and school shooters were being influenced by demons from another plane, trying to spread fear, hate, and despair? What if we knew what evil’s point of view was? That is the idea behind “An Act of Evil”.
A single horrific act, done at the wrong time, and at the wrong place, allows a demon into our world. He wants to make it easier for others of his kind to cross over by making these acts more likely to happen. We’ve read the story many times before, of the hero or group of heroes who figure out something is wrong and expose and vanquish the monster. But we rarely see what the monster is up to and what he thinks of those he hurts and those who are trying to stop him.
I do not want to humanize or sympathize with the beast. This is not a story of redemption and this is not a misunderstood bad boy with a heart. I want to explore the dark side of man by magnifying the worst and removing the good. This is very much a work in progress. I’ve only just begun to plot, so please be patient. That said I welcome and look forward to your feedback. I want to thank you for taking the time to look this over and, if it interests you, to follow the project. It was the response I got from posting the idea that convinced me to pursue it. So it really is because of all of you that I have begun this journey.
