Everyone has a mother, ladies and gentlemen. Even Charlie Barker was born from a woman at one point. When he was alive, anyway.
Today’s tales are all about that maternal caregiver or lack thereof. Dear old mom. First, we delve into the story of a mother who really gives all over herself in ALL FOR THE TAKING. Next, a lonely single mother tries to keep up with her teenage son in CHECKING IN. The last tale is about a mother of a different sort in THE GRAVE MOTHER. It’s a chilling tale of a daughter and her mother’s tombstone…or her mother the tombstone?
If nothing else, perhaps these stories will help you to appreciate your own mother a bit. You may even want to bring her to the sideshow next time. In any case, Charlie Barker will see you next time in the sideshow of the surreal.
