I thought this was a great story... very demented. I did feel that the Monkey's voice (his verbiage and his tone) should have been a little creepier... more like Gollum (the thing that kept saying "my precious" from Lord of the Rings). I was looking for a hysterically creepier tone for the monkey, but in the end the whole story worked for me. I really enjoyed it. "Giggles" kept me turning the page. I'll be sure to pick up another story by Mr. Crane.

Michael Crane is an indie author and scribbler of inane babble that can sometimes end up as stories. He went to Columbia College Chicago where he earned a BA in Fiction Writing and drank way too many Red Bulls. He is the author of IN DECLINE and LESSONS AND OTHER MORBID DRABBLES, and he also might've written two books while he was in high school, but they are absolutely dreadful and he cautions ...more
