‘Entombed in Verse’ Releases Info & Book Trailer

EntombedFB

Souls long gone still wander among the living in Salem. The sound of gallows swinging lingers in the wind. Salem is a boneyard, and like its cemeteries, it mingles four centuries of history with buds of new life sprouting up between the crevices. History is carved into the gravestones, but the death throes of autumns and icy morgue of hundreds of winters have worn away the words, eroding fact into legend. Accusations and confessions have crumbled away into poetry, under the spring shade of new leaves, surrounded by wildflowers.

FunDead Publication’s first poetry anthology is in the final stages! You can pre-order your copy HERE, to be shipped on or before the release date of August 5th, 2017. 

IF YOU’D PREFER TO PICK UP YOUR COPY AT OUR RELEASE EVENT ON 8.5.17 at THE WITCH HOUSE, PRE-ORDER HERE, INSTEAD.

Render Unto Caesar

Liam Hogan

“Mr. Odberry?”

A face appears in the thin gap between door and frame. Nose too big, lips too grey, eyes red and glistening.

“Mr. Joseph Franklin Odberry?”

“Yes?” the rabbit at the doorway nervously replies.

I flash my ID card and give him a reassuring smile. “I’m Ms. Adriana Prescott, from NHS Blood and Transplant. May I come in?”

“Is this… is this about my kidney?”

I nod, solemn now. “Yes, yes it is.” Continue reading

*Flash Fiction* The Stranger in Your Bed

The Stranger in Your Bed

By Laura Beasley

Her answers didn’t add up.

She told him the wooden cage was for a large bird she’d caught. But only small and medium-sized birds lived in the woods. She let him chop up the cage to burn in the fireplace.

She let him scrape the candy off the outside of the cottage. It had been a failed decorating project she’d seen on Pinterest. Women do crazy things.

They met on a dating website. He liked her long, grey hair and flowing black dresses. She was interested in marriage and liked children. She owned her cottage in the middle of the woods.

Their relationship was clicking and he planned to pop the question. He was ready to bring his grandson to visit on weekends.

Everything changed one day. He was fixing dinner in her kitchen while she painted her nails blood-red. He needed more EVOO for the salad dressing. He found the pouch of bones in the pantry. They were children’s finger bones.

He never married her. He kept his grandson safe.

He called the cold case district attorney. The DA had been searching for the killer of a missing child. A little boy had been lost in the woods for more than a decade.

Hansel’s parents would find peace at last.

No-name could have been you and, for a brief moment, you were No-name. Everyone has been, at some point or another. Suspect and uneasy features assigned to an otherwise faceless being. A boogeyman. Someone’s nightmare. For a few moments, at least, you could have been a shadow that terrified or an unexpected voice that left your victim slack-jawed and pale. You might not have been my No-name, but you might have been somebody’s.

“You’ll keep quiet or…” Continue reading
