""Party Games" - creepy kids for the win.

"Not With A Bang" - a man and a woman at the end of the world the only two survivors.

"The Cage" - a castle with a torture chamber no longer in use; short with a great twist. That you see it coming so much the better."

“I agree that it's a shame some books have to suffer ratings that clearly are invalid. However I can't think of a way to prevent it, and I didn't see any ideas in the thread either (I did skim though).

I hope you'll appreciate that if we just start deleting ratings whenever we feel like it, that we've gone down a censorship road that doesn't take us to a good place.”

“Quick-Draw Carl, who still wore the broad-brimmed brown hat of his legendary dad, Sheriff Rick.”
Jonathan Maberry, Fire and Ash

“Well, also ask yourself this: do you know what Steve Miller looks like? No, you don’t. Nobody does. He could be standing right next to you on the subway platform, playing “Jungle Love” on a custom Stratocaster with his name inlaid on the fretboard in mother-of-pearl, and you still wouldn’t know who he is. Because as far as you or anybody else knows, Steve Miller is a big blue space-horse with a mane made out of orange space-flames.”
Sterling Archer, How to Archer: The Ultimate Guide to Espionage and Style and Women and Also Cocktails Ever Written

“I force myself to think of anything but the one thing that I'm actually always thinking about. And that is so exhausting that I sleep more than I ever have.”
