Werewolf Ears

“Did you hear about Sal?” Jimmy lifted his eyes from his work, looked at George’s reflection and replied, “Sal, no, what’s up with him?” He probably spent more time hovering over people, talking to their reflections in the large mirror [...]

The Hourglass Tattoo

My friends and I were always trying to dare each other into doing stupid stuff. Generally, it involved us all getting super drunk, then making suggestions. If we all agreed somebody had to do something, they would have to do [...]

The Portal in the Woods

When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

They Just Won’t Move

There’s three of them outside, hikers probably. Older maps usually show a route over the motorway behind my house but there isn’t one anymore. I don’t mind them usually, they just walk down and then walk back up a few [...]

There’s Something Seriously Messed Up With My New TV

I Never Should Have Cured My Tinnitus
