First up is “It’s Not What You Think” by Peggy Christie, in which several students fall sick and begin behaving strangely, and one of their teachers has an obvious explanation. Next, a pilot’s revelation during a routine refueling mission threatens to bring on doomsday in Shad Kelly’s “Sound the Trumpet.”
M.E. VonBindig’s “Swine Flu Blues” gives one of the classic cases of possession a clever, updated whirl. On the quieter side, there’s a little deal-with-the-devil temptation in Ron P. Maxwell’s “The Dark In The Night.” On the gorier side, “Jigsaw Jimmy” by Justin Holley sends a workplace shooting in unexpected directions.
For funnier fare, “Which One Of You Guys Is 666?” by John Pirog takes the Maury/Springer afternoon trash talk show approach, while Michael Cieslack’s “The Numbers Don’t Lie” has an orphan in for a big surprise when a demoness drops in for a visit.
Numbers also feature strongly in Ken MacGregor’s “Danica’s Inferno,” when all those six-six-sixes turning up stops seeming like coincidence; and the allure of random chance leads to temptation and obsession in “The Wheel,” by Trico Lutkins.
Nicole Castle’s “Standing Watch On A Hot Summer Night” puts a dire twist on kids-vs-small-town supernatural coming-of-age nostalgia. And speaking of coming-of-age, the final story is my favorite … Rachel Weisserman’s delightfully wry “Birthday Party of the Beast” reminded me favorably of a mash-up between The Omen and “The End of the F***ing World.”
This is the first anthology I’ve read from these Great Lakes Association folks, but if this is what they’re up to, I’m glad I have the next couple volumes waiting in the wings!
