The circus is back and awaiting your patronage. Don’t let ole Char down, now. He is dying to tell you three more frightful flash fiction pieces. Well, perhaps dying isn’t the right word. He’s already done that.
This time, the sideshow offers you a sample of Satanic stories. In A DATE WITH THE DEVIL, a young woman conjures up the devil himself. Another lesson from Lucifer occurs when a Colonial village tries to capture the evil one in THE DUE OWED OLE SLEW FOOT. Finally, we go all the way to Mississippi for the real life legend of ROBERT JOHNSON’S BARTER. It’s a tale where a young untalented man found fame and misfortune by selling his soul to the devil. This is another “State of Fear” in our series within a series.
We hope you didn’t go to blazes, despite the theme of today’s shows. Charlie Barker couldn’t have that. How would you come back next month?
