RELEASE: In the Blink of a Wicked Eye by Timothy C. Hobbs

Sirens Call Publications is pleased to announce the release of Timothy C. Hobbs’ collection:

In the Blink of a Wicked Eye

InTheBlinkOfAWickedEye_TimothyCHobbs_front_coverThe short stories and flash fiction pieces offered in this unique collection, In the Blink of a Wicked Eye, tell tales of dark humor, horror, and melancholy.

In Fat, an overweight teenage boy will go to any length to lose weight for a cheerleader who is the apple-of-his-eye no matter how dangerous the consequences. Emissaries transports the reader to a far away planet whose inhabitants possess no souls and must harvest the lost and wandering spirits of others that pass by their corner of the universe. A woman discovers more than she would have hoped with a disfigured man in Constant Companion. The brutal post-nuclear world of desolate wandering survivors in Dissolution shows that even desperation for existence can have its moments of compassion amongst the horror of day-to-day existence.

Take a pinch of terror, a dash of dread, and a spoonful of horror; mix them all together, and you’ll cook up a feast of dark fiction that is certain to bring shudders, contemplation, a bit of laughter, and a taste of the macabre to all who dare sample them In the Blink of a Wicked Eye.
