A Puzzling Gift #SnipSun


I had a story I’m especially proud of published in the 2022 Deathlehem anthology. I love this one, and if you’re a big weirdo who thinks spending an evening with some freaky chums who aren’t what they appear to be is your idea of a good time, Silent Scream is the story for you.

Genre: Holiday, Horror, Lovecraftian

Length: Novelette (19900 words)

Heat Level: There's no sex, but someone naughty ends up in plenty of hot water.

Rating: R (violence, fantasy gore, adult situations)

Story Blurb

Gorgeous Gudrun Lemaire is just the woman Aodh Warzawski has been looking for to help him complete his collection of Nine Ladies Dancing. The love-starved middle-aged goth chick is the perfect victim--or is she?


The sun was rising on Christmas morning as a team of plain-clothes detectives approached a dilapidated farmhouse located on the outskirts of London. A well-maintained truck sat off to the side. There was a light layer of snow on the ground, and there were footprints belonging to two women, two men, and one large dog. 

"This is certainly peculiar," thirty-year-old Detective Constable Tatsuya Auer noted. "The footprints indicate that one bloke and two ladies went in. A different bloke and the same two ladies came out with a big dog. We've no evidence that any other vehicle has been here besides that truck. The footprints leading away from the property disappear beyond the truck. Old Kris Kringle left us a spiffing little Christmas puzzle, innit?"

  1. Finally Google let me in to your blog. How wonderful to have a story you are especially proud of included in this anthology. Yay you.


I try to get comments published as quickly as possible. I have ADHD and anxiety and sometimes I need to work myself up to be able to respond to comments. I don't always reply to comments on my blog, but I do try to visit as many people as possible when I participate in blog hops. I share your work on the monthly Roost Recommendations posts at ornerybookemporium.blogspot.com so others can discover your work. I do read and appreciate your comments.
Sorry, the Captcha is back and this time it's staying. I was inundated with spam comments when I turned it off. I wish butt rash on all the spammers out there.
