SHORT STORY DAY!
15 Short Stories | 15 Authors. All very vengeful and deceitful
A Crooked Mile – Fiona Quinn – Straying down a bleak path, lost doesn’t mean gone forever.
Squatter – Ulla Hakanson – This story is nuts – no, really, quite nuts. David was squinting up at the wall. “There’s a hole in the wall. A big one.”
The Scream of Silence – Pamela Crane She had secretly wanted her baby to die, then twenty-three years later she got her wish. In this haunting murder mystery short story, discover the gruesome stranger harbored within Destiny Childs… and the power of love that frees her
Angel Heart – Michelle Medhat A spot kill from drug-pushers to detectives—how Hz hurts.
Beneath – Anita Kovacevic – The most surreal bun fight: beware of fiery coiffure justice!
Confessions – Julie Mayerson Brown – “He who seeks vengeance must dig two graves – one for his enemy and one for himself.” ~ Chinese Proverb
Death of a Sparrowman – Eric Gates – Don wasn’t someone you would notice twice. Quiet. Bland. Unremarkable. That’s what made him so good at what he did.
Keeping It in the Family – Traci Sanders – An innocent case of sibling rivalry, or an insatiable obsession with control? Find out in this deliciously wicked short story about two sisters, and the men in their lives who become pawns in their endless games.
Mark of the Hyena – Mark Fine – Werner knew absolutely everything about everything. Of course he did, after all he was an opinionated New York academic. His views trumped all others; that was his reasoned assumption. Until he lost a bet, and found himself stranded in the sub-Saharan Africa desert. Trapped in a primitive clash of man against nature’s harsh reality, the stakes had never been higher for Werner. However, In order to survive, this civilized man must be willing to accept the wisdom of others…
Nothing But the Truth – Joe Brewer – He was more than a witness. He saw it all from his home: a useless father, a careless mother, a son who grew tired of it all. He was the neighbor next door who missed nothing. And told everything.
Red Queen Check – Elizabeth Noreen Newton – Revenge for sins of the past is best dished up hot, lusty and electric.
Cold – Lubna ‘Chaudry’ Sengul – “Mothers are supposed to be warm, loving and gentle but not the Mother of Sarah May. Life has a strange way of exacting revenge without lifting a finger.”
Ubiquitous – Geoff Nelder – There’s no escaping the near future until you realize how to play the system.
Set for Saturday – Keith Dixon – Across the road, he hears the glass break. Winds up the car window – keep the cold out. A light goes on in the back of the shop. So he’s in now. Lifting the boxes out the back window. Call that security. Flat screen TVs are best – light to carry, slim boxes. Ready market round the estate, no questions asked.
He sees Carol in his head. In her room. All pale green. Posters on the wall – Brad Pitt. Johnny Depp. She likes Yanks. Brushing her hair. Keeps it strong, she says. Now dabbing something on her eyelids. Some colour. Leaning in at a mirror with her mouth open like they do. He’ll see her in a while and tell her and that’ll be it. Sorted. Won’t have to keep thinking about her then.
Terrestrial Traitor – Jeremy Croston – “We’ve been told this outpost was used as a central command for their spy network.” Eiger rubbed his hands together greedily. “If we’re lucky, we might be able to get all the names of the humans working for them.”
My stomach dropped. I couldn’t let the General see my immediate fear and discomfort. “I’ll gladly take the lead on this mission. If we can root out the traitors, that’ll be a big blow to their operation on Earth.”
His powerful hand hit my shoulder. “I knew I could count on you, son. The mission briefing is in two hours and your team will roll out in twelve. Good luck.”
