Originally written for the stage, “The Weapon” is about the limitations of torture and demonstrates why Jeff is considered a master of both the modern thriller and the short story.
Tragic events unfold in a snowy, sleepy Colorado town. From the first scene of Remaking, in which a man sits alone in the cold, watching a father and son in a diner, you know something is about to go horribly wrong.
The lead characters of Iced bear a shocking resemblance to people we might know—even to ourselves—pillars of society crumbling in an avalanche of bad decisions that seemed perfectly rational at the time.
In “Justice Served,” Mariah Stewart shows what might happen when a young woman does what the rest of us only think about in our darkest moments. It is a tale of vengeance that takes you to corners of the human heart better left unexplored in real life.
“The Circle” is a perfectly symmetrical tale that shatters our comfortable isolation from current events. Through the eyes of a young pregnant woman we see the world from a new perspective as a train carries her from a state of innocence into a state of fear.
“Roomful of Witnesses” clearly demonstrates that the strangest fiction always contains a kernel of truth. Based on a real place, this twisted tale could only have been written by R.L. Stine and reveals his wonderfully off-kilter look at the world.
