Joanne’s Vault by Bert S. Lechner
A late night visit by occult practitioners is nothing new for Joanne Davies. Concealed within the basement of her tattoo parlor, after all, lies a vault containing scores of magical artifacts: powerful weapons, mystical trinkets, and all manner of strange things that are better off locked away.
But tonight? Tonight some new malignant terror waits outside Joanne’s door: a deathly object with innocents in tow; a dread entity that will force her to face her own internal monster, long bound within the tattoos on her arms. Will she still be herself by the time dawn breaks? Or will the terror at her doorstep spell doom for her and those close to her?
