The Black Crayon, by Alexis A. Hunter, Horror

I pause after sliding the door shut behind me. The interior of the trailer is heavy with hazy twilight. Strangled beams of the setting sun slip between the edges of fire-engine red curtains. I sigh and lean against the door, just breathing in the silence. My gaze travels lazily over the walls…

Bread, Hospitals & Army Surplus, by Carson Buckingham, Humor

Being the self-sufficient person that I am, when I ran out of bread this week, I thought I’d just whip up a loaf in my kitchen.
It is to laugh.
Apparently, in order to make a warm loaf of beautiful bready goodness, you must belong to some sort of secret society—whereabouts unknown…

Carrot Juice, by Kip Nealdersun, Humor
