Seven short stories and one novella, THE ODD & THE DEAD is a journey into the fantastic, the bloody, the comedic, and the darkly unusual.
The Boyfriend: in this grim and comedic tale of government overreach, a woman accidentally conjures a man so that she can be properly promoted. Devil in a Blue Skirt: a man seeks revenge as an otherworldly force goads him along. The Nightmares of Flight: a man is being tugged between the terrors of hallucination and the horrors of reality while on a flight over the North Atlantic. Green Girl: kidnapped, a young woman’s future appears to lie in the paws of a creature she always assumed to be a myth. The Pawned Box: a pawnbroker and a junker come together in an attempt to save the world from forces unknown. Jack’s Plan: life is tough and it’s good to have friends, but sometimes those friends lead you astray, sometimes those friends are more than they ought to be. Stressors: a man knows his family has been replaced by mechanical interlopers and he’ll stop at nothing to right the situation. Rise of the Vampnura: in a small beach town, something fishy is going on after dark, and one man and one woman are all that is keeping the aquatic vampires from rising and taking over, but stopping them won’t be easy and the weapons won’t be conventional.
