Another EC inspired cartoony dark crime/ horror. This one originally appeared in

Packing for Goodbye

This was one I thought about including in You Could Make a Killing, but it didn’t really fit. Read it and you might see why.


Flying in for the Holidays

This was a festive challenge for the now defunct Blue Murder magazine. I can’t remember what the words that had to be included were, but they’ll probably stand out…

An Apple a Day

This was my very first published short story – in Quantum Muse. I still have the t-shirt. Even if it’s so faded you can’t make anything out on it.
