My horror short "Candy" will be available this Saturday. It also includes the story "Mr. Cumberland's Last Magic Show" and an excerpt of Tales from an Apartment
. Swing by and pick up a copy with this link: http://amzn.to/A4VsW3
Gerald Dean Rice has a real knack for taking a mundane event & turning it into a horrificly bizarre situation. In the first story, a married man agrees to go to a motel with a strange woman & soon realizes he can never go back to his wife, after having a taste of Candy. The second story was even better than the first one, telling the story of a guy with a real magic trick, who is pushe to use his gift in a way that he never imagined.
Rice's work always has a touch of insanity to it, drawing me back to see what other madness he has created.
Both stories have a bit of madness to them-twisty darkness with endings that stick with you after you've finished reading them. Candy starts out as a pretty straight-laced adultery story with a disturbing completion that might give potential cheaters pause. Magic was my favorite of the two tales, with a surreal quality to it that remains throughout, growing more intriguingly wicked as it comes to a conclusion.
For the price, it's a bargain to check out these two well written stories by an up and coming independent writer.
Easy to read stories that made me think I was watching episodes of the Twilight Zone. I am willing to take a chance on more of Mr. Rice's work. What an imagination!
