TBM-1810.31 – With Teeth & Other Stories

With Teeth

Description:

#Audio. #Halloween A collection of five short-short stories for the season. Read by the Bathtub Mermaid and Friends.

Excerpt:

I reach around him and grab the bottle from his far hand, then take a swig. “Not bad,” I said. “Tastes like a ninety-nine… maybe a two thousand. Virgin?”

“Virgin,” he confirms. “Two thousand. Carpathian blend. Shall I heat it for you?

“Please.” I go to the couch and wrap a cotton throw around my legs. He joins me a few minutes later, handing me my favorite mug – a smiley-face with fangs – full of steaming liquid. For himself, he’s got scrambled eggs and a hamburger patty. He says protein is essential.

TBM 1710.12 – Just Breathe (and other stories)

Description:

Three pieces of spooky short fiction, read by the Bathtub Mermaid and Friends.

Excerpt:

I plunge backwards into the water. They always push you overboard in the split second when you forget to anticipate the shove. The theory is that if you can’t see the waves coming to greet you, you’re less likely to panic.

But I never panic.
