Special Halloween Edition
Issue #10 – October 2010 – Sam Hane It’s Not
My first introduction to the word “Samhain” was on a blackboard in the movie Halloween 2. A year or so later, I continued to believe the word was pronounced Sam-hane, and until I began studying the Celtic religions, I did believe it was a rite performed by druids to foretell the future. Just that; in my imagination, a ring of druids stood surrounding a single Roman centurion who had been tied to the table rock in the center of Stonehenge.
Issue #11 – July 2010 – Chopped Up Pop
I’ve been away at college, I thought things were okay back home. Mom always answered the phone, and Dad always seemed happy enough when I talked to him. If they’d shown any indication of things going bad, I would have known.
Issue #9 – January 2010 – Ring a Ring a Rosie
The Emergency Room at Brighid’s Sacred Cross Hospital in New Bedlam had experienced many nights of insanity over the years. Never as many as in recent months, where it seemed every night had its share of crazies, but probably more than any other small town ER would.

Fiction – Black & White – April-May 2007
Anna hadn’t meant to be keeping track of the passage of the days and weeks in her flesh; she’d begun on the soft sheet-rock covering her space. She snapped out of a daze at one point, and discovered she’d been digging at her arm. With the last match, she lit the candle – and counted fifteen bloody gouges on her forearm. There was little feeling in the arm, delayed shock perhaps. After that though, she’d just kept adding one mark on her arm for each one on the soft sheet-rock covering the walls of her space.

He tore himself from my womb, ripping ang shredding as he came. Michael barely had time to call the council to save my life before my child, our child, began to grow. Immediately after he was freed from my body, he began to feed.

Fiction – The Lion Roared (summer 2006)
Emmy tore her focus from the road for just one second to flick her lighter and touch the flame to the tip of the cigarette that had dangled from her lips for a half hour. In that one moment, some kind of dog wandered out onto the road; Emmy saw the red reflection of the animal’s eyes barely in time, and she swerved while hitting the brakes.

Review – Teen Witch Kit
Silver RavenWolf has her fans, but I’m not one of them. The “If I don’t do it, someone else will” excuse for putting out the Teen Witch Kit just does not cut it with me. I tried being objective with this kit – really, I did.
