New story: Dead Bodies Don't Scream in Tales of the Lake Volume 5

Tales of the Lake is a marvellous horror anthology series from Crystal Lake Publishing, and the latest volume is out now -- including my story 'Dead Bodies Don't Scream,' which is a variation on one of my favourite themes: Be careful what you wish for...

Dead Bodies Don't Scream by Michelle Ann King (Horror, 4,033 words)

Allie wipes her eyes, then stands up and kisses Rae’s hair. ‘I’ll be back soon,’ she says. 

Because the universe doesn’t care about right and wrong; she’s always known that. It doesn’t care about fairness or justice or providing miracles. 

If you need any of those things, you have to go and get them for yourself.

One Free Go (Horror, 2,221 words)

When I was a kid, a Halloween party meant a couple of ghost stories, some bat-shaped gingerbread, and a bag of fun-sized Mars bars. That was it, job done. These days you have to decorate the whole house, get everyone fancy dress costumes, lay on enough chocolate to sink a battleship and buy boxes of specially-made black cupcakes topped with fondant-icing eyeballs.
