The story follows a young man who is routinely abused by his grandmother, and opens with him being driven to murder her.

In the Halloween 2017 issue of Dark Dossier, Chris released the tales The Darkness, Song of Sophia, and The Exorcist Memoirs, the latter actually being a true story, as the publication accepted non-fiction submissions as well.

He discovers that he can either fight the nothingness or finally accept it. Song of Sophia follows the story of a deranged mental patient who is haunted by a scorpion and a winged-donkey, personifications of his life. Only his favorite therapist can make them go away for a time, but his obsession with her eventually becomes a ruin. The Exorcist Memoirs is a true story about Chris' own personal experiences doing successful banishment rituals for people he knew, using ancient Greek religion, something never before heard of in the modern exorcist world.

The Lurker in issue 22 was one of Chris' most worked on stories since the late winter of 2017. It follows a young man who is out of luck with a job he hates as a local paraprofessional. With the children and the stress of the job driving him crazy, he becomes convinced that a diabolical toy doll is alive, and is not only trying to get him fired, but destroy the children she resents for treating her like an object. The young para is convinced that he's the only hero who knows what's happening, that other teachers are even in on the plot, and the school must be turned on its ears to foil it once and for all.

Issue 23 features part one of Memoirs of a Killer, a fictional tale of a man who is so upset with the way his life has been throughout the years, that he blames the nature of the entire world, and goes on a killing spree to rid it of all human beings he can find, in an attempt to literally start the world over with the hope that the new human race will go in the right direction this time. The story is split into 3 parts, the 2nd and 3rd being published in issue 24.

Issue 24 features part two and three of Memoirs of a Killer, along with an additional story titled The Return. Part two and three of Memoirs of a Killer finishes where the first one left off. The young killer tries to finish off his municipality, but finds that because of a divine intervention, he must leave and set his target on a new location. The story ends as the killer discovers that the power to rid the world of wretched humans never needed to involve killing innocent people. There had always been a better way that he doesn't discover until it's too late. The Return opens with a young man who has been forcefully brought back to the town and area he hates and tried so desperately to leave. He soon finds, however, that his best option for escape lies in the stars above.

In issue 25 of Dark Dossier, he released a story called Ogre. Based on the grotesque and incestual legends of Goon Road in Illinois and the horrific imagination that it continues to ignite to this day, the story follows a young man in the deep countryside of Illinois who is haunted by the deformed rustic humans who inhabit the depths of the woods nearby. While on a walk, he is eventually pursued by one of the monsters. Upon escape at the end of the story, and much to his horror, the young man discovers the greater reason as to why the ogre was chasing him, something that would alter all he had ever known or chose to accept about his life.
