A Man Called Nereus (2014)

as Nereus

A Man Called Nereus is a film that smashes together the genres of Sci-Fi , Crime-Action Drama and Comedy.

Nereus is an autistic man who is being held captive by the Filaria crime family because he has an incredible ability to predict the exact outcome of sporting events. Keith Taylor is a drug addict that is struggling to stay clean and employed. This all changes the moment Keith discovers Nereus. With renewed hope, Keith devises a plan to kidnap Nereus and take him to Las Vegas. However many others want Nereus as well. One is an extremist spiritual group named the Mayans; another is two rogue DEA agents that have a plan to take Nereus on a Vegas trip of their own. The most sinister of these groups is the Filaria crime family and their two henchmen Santo and Johnny, who use extreme tactics like posting a bounty and enlisting a group of killer meth heads to hunt down and seize back the “Brain”. Motivated by different reasons these groups inflict damage on one another and annihilate all that stands in between them and Nereus.

As Keith and Nereus try to evade capture they find a kinship that is new to the both of them. Through their journey Keith realizes that Nereus is much more than a savant. He also unveils that they are connected through a greater cause than what is currently transpiring in the fourth dimension. This leads Keith to the secrets behind Nereus’s ability to manipulate space and time and the ancient place these powers originate from.

Eventually Keith will have to decide what path he must take, the one for himself, or the one for Nereus.

Weird Little Kid (2014, Source Point Press)


Available HERE!

From Source Point Press: This collection of poetry and verse-like prose (all of it, predictably, dark) from David C. Hayes is new... for him. Translating the macabre wit and thinly-veiled anguish of his fiction into verse was a difficult task and it was only possible by drawing on memories. Hence, "Weird Little Kid" or, as David will tell you, "that cute euphemism they would use for me instead of a name." This volume is illustrated by the very talented Diana Busby (a fellow Michigan State Spartan) and will be available the the beginning of 2014 as an exclusive chapbook.

Serial (2013-15, Source Point Press)


#1 featuring "Gacy" & "Fish"
#2 featuring  "Nurse's Creed" & "Lizzie Borden"

Serial's first, prototype, issue was published in 2007. Conceived as an anthology series in the vein (no pun intended) of Tales from the Crypt, but focusing on real-life serial killers, the concept proved popular. Source Point Press will be putting Serial out as a quarterly periodical with shifting creative teams.

Penciled by Kurt Belcher and inked by Heinrik Horvath, the lead-off story "Gacy" was banned by Pick it up to check out why!

"Bathory" written and painted by Kurt Belcher,  "Nurse's Creed" written and illustrated by David C. Hayes, "Lizzie" written by Kevin Moyers and illustrated by Eric Xton, "La Mataviejtas" written by Trico Lutkins and illustrated by David Andres.
