The First Wish

The impatient Genie glared. "Gimme a minute," said Roger, who was genre savvy enough to know that wishes often backfired. Irresistible to women? He'd seen that go wrong in the stories. Eternal life? He'd be alive when the sun burned out. And beyond. Unbelievable wealth? Tempting, but even Roger knew...

The Cut-Up

They refer to me in the papers as The Cut-Up. I don't mind. I carve that name into the bodies of my subjects in pretty, exaggerated cursive. They wonder about my strange methods; why the whimsical signature? Why do I vacuum-pack each victim in plastic? And why on Earth do I always remove the liver? ...

Oops

The people of Earth were confused and intrigued by the cryptic message, sent from space in rudimentary English: "we behold you. we bring worship you deserve." They had obviously monitored our media enough to learn one of our languages, but their meaning was unclear; had these aliens deemed mankind w...

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
"The Beholder" is what I called my nosey neighbor.
"Beauty" is my favorite ice pick.

"You always hurt the one you love" says the old adage.
It took hours and hours to demonstrate how much he really loved her.

Abner's Candy

Abner cursed his increasing senility; tonight was Halloween and he’d nearly forgotten to poison the candy. Although he'd secretly killed many neighborhood pets during his wretched ninety-six years, he'd never quite satisfied his murderous urges. But children ? Oh, the very idea made him swoon. So he...

Thief

In a land probably very far away from you, there lives a mischievous thief. This man is not a pickpocket lifting wallets on the street. He would never rob you at gunpoint. Nor is he a burglar, slipping into your home to plunder art from your walls or gems from your safe. He has no interest in taking...

Terry believed that no one would ever truly love her. But when the cannibals had finished, they all agreed that they had.
