What happens when you abandon your family? Do they abandon you? Does a soul eater or a mythical monster come looking for you? James is about to find out. He’s home alone, having once again turned down an invitation from his family to share in an evening out. He’s about to come face to face with a thief of a distinctly supernatural kind.
Fractured Nursery Rhyme/Short Story
Fawkes the cook has had enough of Mr. Stuart’s insults. And now Stuart’s son is making advances on the maid, Fawkes’ daughter. How much abuse can a good cook take? When it appears that a better position is within his grasp, Fawkes plots revenge, but even the best cooks can make a mistake, and snakes don’t ask questions before they bite.
Incorporating elements from the nursery rhyme “Sing a Song of Sixpence,” the story of Fawkes the cook weaves a cautionary tale of revenge gone horribly wrong. Fans of dark humor and fractured fairy tales will find something to like in “Sixpence and Rye and a Snake in a Pie.”
