Home is where the heart is … or the hatred.
You can feel the love and care someone puts into their home just by walking into it. Equally, you can feel the hatred and malice when you step into a home where dark deeds have been done.
Alex and his team of so-called paranormal investigators are given the opportunity of a lifetime when they are able to film inside one of the most haunted, and cursed, locations in their area:
The Jackson Mansion.
The thing that makes this mansion truly unique is that it is built completely underground. Determined to uncover the dark secrets of the mansion’s past, and prove himself a notable investigator, Alex doesn’t care what it takes. The mansion, however, has other ideas, as well as some rather restless occupants.
Claven has become one of my all time favorite horror authors! She doesn’t pull any punches and writes some of the scariest and most disturbing stuff I’ve ever read! Buried is just such an example. While not quite as perverted as her Asylum books, it’s still explicit and frightening! It reminds me a lot of Grace Encounters, which if you have not seen, you should watch. A TV crew goes into a haunted mansion looking for a great story and some freaky shots, but what they find is not what they expected! I was engrossed; I couldn’t put it down!
Once again, if you don’t like even the tiniest bit of horror, then you will not like this book. But if you want something obviously scary and thrilling, then pick up this book!

Short Story Description:
This is not a Christmas story.
This is not a cute story.
This story features demons, cats and some strange occurrences.
Prepare to take the same journey as Toni as she navigates her way around a new rescue cat and the problems arise when you don’t actually know where your pet comes from.
In some ways I read this short story at the wrong time, but I also read it at the right time: A stray kitten showed up at my husband’s job and he brought it home and now we have three cats! We are going through an adjustment period now, and then I picked up this short story… It’s about Toni who brings home a rescue cat from the shelter she frequents….
This is not a Christmas story, though it does take place at the Christmas time of year. Do not think this is a happy story as it isn’t. It makes you think about your rescue animals and what they might have experienced and been through and that we will never know.
And the rescue kitten from my husband’s job… She is Maine coon, like Snuggles in this short story…. I just hope my Shiva is not like Snuggles!
I plan to read more written by Sian B. Claven![Top]

Hans is a brilliant doctor, sent to an Asylum in the middle of nowhere to continue his post-world war experiments on the insane.
Karen is a bubbly nurse whose sole intention in the world is to do good and help those that cannot help themselves.
Good intentions cross into power hungry mania in this horrific tale of how all their failed experiments come back to haunt them, and how the Asylum holds its own secrets.
“Asylum makes your hair stand on end. This is creepy and dark, yet incredibly fascinating. To delve into the mind of the ‘scientist’ at this asylum is to find sheer madness roiling in those depths, as well as utter self-delusion. The very stones of this madhouse is drenched with horror … a clever and twisted MUST read!”- Elaina J. Davidson

For cop killer Bradley Walker, pleading insane was the easiest get out of jail free card he ever played. Left in the hands of the cops to decide where he is sent, he is dropped off at an Asylum in the middle of nowhere. All is not as it seems and Bradley is left questioning his sanity when the orderlies, nurses and doctors all around him appear more insane than the patients.
