Yes, I can.

Oh, you actually want one? Here are a few from the flash fiction collection I've been working on.

THE LIBRARIAN SHIVERED as the thought hit her. Everyone has a last book after which they never read another, even if only because Death and his bleached bone hands arrived to take them away to the bookshop in the sky.

JIMMY’S STOMACH ACHE turned out to be something more serious. The acid ate its way out and he died in agony.

AS ENTERTAINERS GOT BETTER and better, people spent more and more time being entertained. Eventually, all that was left was entertainment – and the people starved in their seats as they entertained themselves into oblivion.

WHEN THE SCIENTISTS cured death, they thought it was the greatest advance the world had ever seen. It also turned out to be the biggest curse.

IT WAS THE SCARIEST horror story the world had ever seen. Marketing spent every penny of their budget without rustling up a single sale.

HER LIFE was like a bad book that never ended. And then one day it ended and suddenly it didn’t seem too bad after all.

THE WORLD ENDED on a Tuesday. But we were all so busy working we didn’t notice.

IT TOOK HIM FORTY YEARS, but Avinash finally quit smoking overnight, with no nicotine gum, e-cigs or patches required. It was little consolation to his family as they lowered the coffin into the ground.(less)

But I feel like I'd probably be a wolf - nocturnal, lonely and misunderstood. And just a little cunning when I have to be.(less)

Launch Day: The Leipfold Files by Dane Cobain (Leipfold #3)

Hi, folks! Dane here, and today I’m super proud to announce that it’s launch day for The Leipfold Files, the third book in my Leipfold series of quirky cosy mysteries.

In contrast to the first two books (Driven and The Tower Hill Terror), The Leipfold Files is a short story collection that focuses on some of the early cases that James Leipfold took on before he started his private detective consult

Meat by Dane Cobain
"Tom Copeland, a vet with a somewhat shady history is offered a job at a local farm in England with Old MC Donald (yes, this writer has something of a wit). But it's not a benign country farm of the nursery rhyme. It's a factory bent on making profit " Read more of this review »

This is Christie at her best - it's the finest example of her work that I've ever read, and it's set the bar high for the rest of her bibliography. Hercule Poirot investigates a murder as he floats elegantly down the Nile, in a setting which has alwa ...more

In many ways, Pet Sematary is typical of Stephen King – it’s chilling, haunting and, in some ways, it feels almost like it’s been written following a formula. That’s not necessarily a bad thing though, and at the very least it guarantees a certain le ...more

Horror Aficionados : * 2022 A-Z Book Title Challenge 149 327 Jun 24, 2022 01:00AM  
Mark Twain
“′Classic′ - a book which people praise and don't read.”
Mark Twain

William Peter Blatty
“Like the brief doomed flare of exploding suns that registers dimly on blind men's eyes, the beginning of the horror passed almost unnoticed; in the shriek of what followed, in fact, was forgotten and perhaps not connected to the horror at all.”
William Peter Blatty, The Exorcist

Neil Gaiman
“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
Neil Gaiman, Coraline

Charles Bukowski
“For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can't readily accept the God formula, the big answers don't remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.”
Charles Bukowski

Emmanuel Fombu
“It takes the average American four years of doctors' visits to spend as much time with their physician as they spend with their phone in a single day.”
Emmanuel Fombu, The Future of Healthcare: Humans and Machines Partnering for Better Outcomes
