serial killers

FEMME FATALE

Charlie Barker has an eye socket for the girls today, my friends.  It’s ladies day at the circus.  All women get in free.  Now, getting out…that’s another story.

Why should men have all the fun?  Murder and the macabre aren’t a man’s sole domain.  Case in point is THE GODDESS OF DEATH.  Next, the matriarchal head of a crime syndicate battles the undead trying to prove that you DON’T MESS WITH MAMA KESS.   And then, it’s a futuristic fable of a time when men are the endangered species.  Trouble is, female DESPOTS are running things now.

Next time, Sideshow of the Surreal showcases the unexpected as we wrap up August.  Please come back then.  That is, if you dare.

FIT TO KILL

There is a fascination with serial killers and murders in general, ladies and gentlemen.  These are just as much of an oddity in the sideshow as a two-headed calf or the fire-eater.  Charlie Barker will pull back the tent flaps so you can observe the freak of nature known as the homicidal maniac.

The first psycho on the list for today is the tenant in the DUPLEX.  He’s been renting both places out for years and the landlords just found out why.  There is also an AVID LISTENER, who loves a late night radio show.  Perhaps love isn’t the right word.  Last up, it’s KILLING TIME where a woman awaiting a train departure decides to kill a little time.  Let’s hope it’s just time, anyway.

Didn’t get enough death and destruction, folks?  There’s more, but we couldn’t fit it all into this show.  Come back on Thursday for more murder and mayhem.

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.
