STITCHES IN TIME

Hello, all you clock watchers.  The circus is back.  The sideshow is open for business.  Let’s just hope you have time to do it justice.

Time is the operative word today, ladies and gentlemen.  The three stories for today all have to do with time and our perception of it.  First, what would happen if your memories were all scripted for the sake of some ulterior motive?  We examine that in MEMORY REIMAGINED.  The EERIE EDITION give headlines of tomorrow – but why do they all have to be so grim?  Third, it’s time to SPRING FORWARD.  Here, you set your clocks forward an hour and your life back to nothing.

My, but time flies.  It seems like you just got here and now the sideshow is closing.  There’s always next time.

PARANORMAL DISTRIBUTION

The supernatural surrounds us, though some can’t see it.  Allow Charlie Barker to take off your blindfold.  There is a lot to behold.

In our totally true trilogy of terror today, we have a little tale known as BOARD STIFFS.  This is about a group of gamers who are visited by a stranger wanting to join in the fun.  Second on the docket, it’s time to USE YOUR CRANIUM.  This tale is about a campus legend that needs to be put to the test – no matter the consequence.  The last horror story is about a night shift chambermaid who has to face THE TURN INN TERROR.  That haunted men’s restroom is just murder to clean.

Like ghostly vapors, the circus once again returns to the mist.  Fear not, faithful patrons.  It will be back soon for another sojourn into the surreal and spooky.

KILLER INSTINCTS

Today’s tales, as the kids would say, are killer.  More precisely, they are about killers.  Murder most foul.

The first story is about an annual party where a juicy murder might be the fly in the ointment that could ruin a good time.  Best KEEP IT ON ICE until afterwards.  Nobody wants to be a killjoy.  Next, we learn of THE LEGEND OF GORY GARY AND SCORCHED SARAH.  It’s all in good taste, I assure you.  Or, rather, it all tastes good? Lastly, we pay a visit to THE FINGER TREE.  Just think of it like a Christmas tree for a serial killer. Serial killers?  Anyway, you get the point.  Point?  Fingers?  Nevermind.

This time around, we took a break from the supernatural.  The circus will return next week with a trio of more stories.  These are of the supernatural variety.  Pop by, won’t you?  You have a standing invitation to the sideshow.

LEGEND HAS IT

There are legends born of adversity, ladies and gentlemen.  Out of fearful accounts and tearful remembrance.  Legends are seldom given rise through triumph.

Three such tales are presented today, two of which are under the “States of Fear” sub-series of stories.  The first story, however, is a horror story set amongst the seas.  Or at least, a village on the port of a tumultuous ocean.  It’s called ANY PORT IN A STORM.  Next, we visit Rising Sun in Maryland.  Here, we learn of the hideous legend of the WRATH OF THE PIG WOMAN.  Finally, we set foot on the path of an infamous real-life witch where we ask the question WHERE DID YOU BURY ME?  Hampton, New Hampshire is the locale for this legend.

That about does it for February, friends.  Come back early next month for three more terrifying tales.  The circus will be open.
