A Collection of Short Stories: written by robots
Six intriguing and fascinating short stories that deliver so many unexpected twists and turns, you’ll need a chiropractor. And if that is not enough, there is also a bonus - the first 12,000 words of, The Diary of P.F. Criggley, the author’s upcoming nightmarish horror novel - a must-read that you will not be able to put down, nor turn off the lights. But before we get to stories that will scare you long after you finished reading them, let’s start off our book, A Collection of Short Stories - written by robots, with happier times. Love Is Blind is a chance encounter with true love - who knows when and where it will come along. The Hypnotist is a story of harmless child’s play that turns in to a global catastrophe. Play Ball is the story of a young boy who wants more than anything to play baseball, but lacks something very important. Mr. Toe Dangles is an elderly man who suddenly realizes his Golden Years have new meaning, for all the wrong reasons. Antagonize shows that everyone has a purpose in the world, no matter how big or small they think they are. The Reducimizer is about a military weapon that does exactly what it says, much to the surprise of General Chapowski. Which brings us to a bonus sample of, The Diary of P.F. Criggley. While on his lunch break one day in 1937, the editor, Hanford Pierpont, bought a magnificent antique rolltop desk for the princely sum of $36.37. So proud he was to have the ornate desk delivered and set up in his office, that he immediately began to fill the desk with his belongings. He discovered a black leather bound diary hidden inside the desk, and being curious, he sat there reading the diary of a Mr. P.F. Criggley. An hour later, his office secretary found his lifeless body at his antique rolltop desk - his head resting upon the newly discovered diary. And so begins the story of one man’s hellish downward spiral, to depths we can not fathom.
