Lagahoo by Shawn Alleyne


The Lagahoo has been a beast of the underworld for as long as any can remember.
He is best known as Papa Bois’ hitman and sometimes messenger. He roams the night with confidence, his prey unsuspecting but rarely innocent.
A lucky few have seen Lagahoo in his most human form: a large, threatening man in a wolf-mask; the only form anyone lives to talk about. The less fortunate would have a different story to tell: the story of a terrifying shape-shifting man and a hungry, sharp-toothed dog. But the dead don’t talk.
Man, or beast? Even Papa Bois doesn’t know, but his pet keeps the “authorities” confused. Was it death by dog-attack, if witnesses see only a man? How does a stray dog put a bullet in a man’s head?

Keron Rojas by Ayodhya Ouditt

Keron Rojas

Keron is not his real name, but it is the only one he knows. Enslaved during the invasion of Venezuela, Keron remembers being a soldier in the army; though he doesn’t remember which, either. He believes he is Venezuelan, as he once heard someone call him “subject Rojas
Keron is a simple man, who wants a simple life. He is an undertaker and grave digger, living a solitary life with his only child, Luke. Before the birth of his son, Keron was a prisoner in the bowels of the Ministry of Science and Technology. He was the subject of nano-oil experimentations. One day, a man in a lab coat handed him a child and led him out, back into the world. The man told Keron the child was his son, and to run, lest the boy become an experiment, too. In the slums of Beetham City Keron fought for his life, unable to control his mutation and barely keeping Luke alive. Finally, he sought help from Papa Bois. In return for the illegal drugs that helped Keron control his mutation, Papa Bois had only one request: destroy his traitorous right hand man, and take his place.
