25 100-word shorts that range from darkly comic to downright terrifying and wrong.

A man learns a painful and valuable lesson… one finger at a time. 

An old couple bickers over disgusting leftovers.

Kids go ignored when they tell their parents about the horrors that lurk in their bedrooms, until it’s too late…

 

LESSONS AND OTHER MORBID DRABBLES is a collection of 25 100-word shorts that range from darkly comic to downright terrifying and wrong.  Some shorts feature ghouls and monsters while others are simply about people behaving very, very badly.  Which is scarier?  Find out in this sick and twisted collection.

 

They may only be a few words long, but that doesn’t lessen the bloodshed any…

Excerpt

BEDTIME

“There isn’t a monster under your bed,” Daddy says.

“Is so.”

“Bradley, I’m not going to let you stay up late because you’re making up stories about monsters and whatnot,” he says, folding his arms and frowning.

“Look under there, and if there isn’t a monster I’ll go to sleep.”

Daddy laughs and shakes his head. “Fine. If that’ll make you feel better.” He gets down on his knees and sticks his head underneath my bed.

Then there’s a scream and a loud chomping noise. I see the color red spill on the floor…

Daddy doesn’t have a head anymore.


LESSONS

Poor, poor Mr. Wilks.

He used to have ten fingers, but now he only has eight. And the fact that he’s screaming and calling me names isn’t helping the situation any. He’s tied to a chair, anyways. He’s not going anywhere.

Snip. Another finger goes bye-bye.

Another howl of pain. Another name I’m called.

Snip. Snip.

What a terrible mess. The floor is covered with blood. This is going to be a bitch to clean. No matter. A lesson must be learned. Lessons aren’t always clean, are they?

Maybe next time, he will learn to use his fucking turn signals.
