LittleBernieTiger
  Phone Girl And Other Scary Stories Voices from beyond. Imaginary friends. Unsettling sights. All this and more … Phone Girl My mum’s phone rang in the middle of the night. It woke us both up. ‘Go back to sleep, darling,’ she said. The phone rang again. And again. And again. My mum turned it off. It kept ringing. She put it in the fridge.

Thanks The Sounding Rocks Jake didn’t like the Sounding Rocks. He said they sounded like crumbling pain. Like when you have toothache and you can hear it as well as feel it. Like that.

They put bad feelings in my ears at night.’ Jake’s mum smiled. What else could she do? It was all a mum or dad could do most of the time. Jake kept talking. ‘They so...

Shawn Bracebridge – The Cat’s Pyjamas and Other Stories

IMG_5661
I recently had the pleasure of chatting to Dublin-based artist and illustrator, Shawn Bracebridge. With his distinctive style and eye for the quirky, Shawn’s artwork combines beautiful echoes of previous decades of graphic design with a vibrant, contemporary edge.  1. How did you get started? For as long as I can remember I have always been drawing. My father is a very talented painter, which is where I initially found inspiration. I have always had a very active imagination which always adds to my creativity. When I finished school I knew that I wanted to pursue a career in art. I initially wanted to study animation, while I do have a strong interest and love for animation I quickly discove...

The Eleventh Film – Horror/Science Fiction Flash Fiction Series

324811
The Eleventh Film XVIII With her comrades gone, the lexicographer felt it was as if the world now hung useless in its orbit. Not spinning any more. Limp. Cernuous. Nutant. Forever. Unlimited. That final word took her back. Darkness. She was a child in her father’s car. There was a sign overhead. She saw the word. Then she was too young to understand what the word meant. Now she knew that the endlessness of this word really was the end. For thirteen nights she resisted but on the fourteenth morning she suffered a crisis in language and was no longer able to compute. She lay curled on her side as the last of her brain’s charge emptied itself out through her right ear and onto the floor of the ...
