Released yesterday from Wild Child Publishing.
Weirdly, Volume III, A Collection of Strange Stories.
Several strange and weird events occurred during the compilation of this anthology -- but I am pleased to report that this book contains my urban fantasy short story: another Lillie St. Claire adventure, titled Ding, Dong, Dell.
Yes, the title and the frame of the story comes from the nursery rhyme which begins:
Ding, dong, dell,
Pussy's in the well,
Who put her in?...
Other Lillie St. Claire adventures with the paranormal -- Stone Child and Corpse Candles -- appeared in Weirdly I and Weirdly II: Eldritch.
A funny thing. I've always been a bit anxious about the ending of Corpse Candles -- the bad guys get creamed by a transport truck. I worried that their retribution might appear too neat, tidy and ex machina -- until I watched a recent episode of Criminal Minds ( the TV series involving a team of FBI Behaviorial Analysis investigators) where the bad guy gets creamed by a transport truck.
If the big dogs think that solution realistic, so can I!
