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.

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.

FEARFUL FOLKLORIC FIGURES

Hello again, fateful travelers.  The sideshow tent is open, once again.  This time, Char spins all of his yarns in the “States of Fear” series of tales.  These are local myths and legends from each state in America.

The first stop in our voyage of the vanguard is in North Carolina along the coastline.  Here you will see a ghostly specter who foretells disaster in TAKE HEED OF THE GRAY MAN.  Massachusetts is where we hear about THE UNFORTUNATE CONSEQUENCE OF THE DOVER DEMON.  Then, it is off to Virginia where we leave you HANGING FROM THE BUNNY MAN BRIDGE.  Each of these locales has its own legendary figure you’ll get to meet…once.

If you’re still around next week, we’ll meet some more legends.  They would love to meat, errr meet, you.  Please return when the circus is back in town.
