This week, in Darker Words…, my wee garden for showcasing dark stories, poesy and writing bits brings some new yumminess with words in it. Read on, my Wicked Luvs…
Two mini-Reviews and a micro-Blurb:
- “The Ditch”, by Aimee Bender
- “Out of the Shadows”, by Magaly Guerrero
- Brains for Lunch: a Zombie Novel in Haiku?! by K. A. Holt
Archaic Word Yum:
- “Afeard” is the first word in a new feature at my page. Follow the link to see its meaning, as defined by my 150-something year old dictionary, (and perhaps to use the word in a haiku, a 13-word story, or in a haibun if you’re feeling extra dauntless).
- “Belle du Freak” won the Choose What Tale I’ll Tell poll. The carnivalesque fun will start in January… Don’t feel too bad if your choice didn’t win this time around; there’ll be others.
- Rhissanna’s Joan Ennuyétte might need a lawyer… or a discrete incinerator. *cough*
One of the most delicious images, this week, is John Scarratt’s cover of Macbeth. Click the skull to read my favorite quote, my Wicked Luvs. Then again, you probably already know it, don’t you?
