Bite-Size Fiction for Your . . . um, Sweet Tooth

Halloween has come and gone, but it's never too late for a little creepy, a little crawly. Treat yourself to a couple of fun-size candy bars - don't pretend they're all gone! - and snack on these two new 100-word stories. You know, like before it gets really dark . . . .

  8. Congratulations on these two awesome stories!!! Game totally creeped me out and I did a little squeal of excitement when I scrolled through the ezine table of contents and came to your name and story. So wonderful! That's a beautifully put together journal too.

  15. I'm finally down to the hard candies left over after Halloween. Chocolate bars go first, then the Tootsie Rolls, then the hard candy.
