The books opened one at a time revealing

  • The books opened one at a time revealing empty pages where once there'd been masterpieces. Gridley smiled and glanced at the ink on her hands. She fingered a spiral on the floor

  • and watched the sunlight playing with the shadows on the curtains. A low humming came from the corner where Gridley's sister sat, stroking the furry tail of her pet cat, Tamsin

  • was astonished. The morbidity had it's own life here. Gloom walked around the place like a shunned teenager. Now I was going to add to the mournful still life by telling them

  • I was pregnant with a vampire-werewolf-zombie baby, and I, too, was a member of the undead. My flesh had already begun to rot, and my cognitive abilities had slowly diminished to

  • the point where thinking about Fermat's last theorem caused me to hemorrhage and my memories of receiving the Field medal faded. Would the zombie-were-vampire in my belly do maths?

  • I hoped my baby would grow up to be a great mathematician like his vampire mommy or a great musician like his zombie-werewolf daddy. Maybe he'd take after

  • his mutant freak grandad and become a tennis player, or follow the footsteps of his albino bigfoot uncle and go exploring the rainforest. I would have been proud. But he ended up

  • tits up in some Louisiana swampwater. 'GatorGrub' as the locals so colorfully refer to the dearly departed. He pumped gas for most of his adult life and spent the weekends

  • sucking weak swill beer through a straw (in order to make it more potent) and then hunting for the "GatorGrub" loving gators. He'd wait until the gator was done feasting before

  • sacrificing it in the name of Steve Irwin. Normal-sized gators had failed to resurrect the aussie thus far. He thought this attempt would also be ill-fated, but then... "Crikey!!!"
