My newest eBook went live today. Dollar Tales from the Morbid Museum: Flash Fiction. It includes four flash fiction stories and an introduction that is in its own way a story. It’s a little introduction to the Morbid Museum and the curator of the museum, Mister Siris Grim. There will be one, or possibly two, more installments of Dollar Tales from the Morbid Museum leading up to the release of the full collection of short fiction titled The Morbid Museum. This will be a collection of horror, true crime, science fiction, and other genre fiction curated around the theme of death. So exciting!
The first story in this new release is titled “Clyde.” It’s about the ghosts of the Pac-Man game from the perspective of Clyde, the orange ghost. Fun Fact: the orange ghost in the Ms. Pac-Man game was named Sue. The next story is titled “Highway 491.” This is a real highway that goes through New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah (partially). Prior to 2003 it was called the Devil’s Highway because it was U.S. Route 666. What kind of spooky things happen on the Devil’s Highway? You’ll have to read to find out.
The next story is “Blue Ridge Mountain Hop,” a ghost story set in the Appalachian Mountains which are sometimes called the Blue Ridge Mountains because of the misty hue they reflect during certain times of day. This is followed by the last story “Jesse’s Lament.” This is a tale about a young man during the Civil War feeling homesick and missing his twin brother. This story takes place during the Battle of Gettysburg on Culp’s Hill. “Blue Ridge Mountain Hop” also includes some apparitions from the Civil War which is why I put those two together.
