The Sky Over Chaos (eBook)
Short Stories By Markus Mcdowell
Sobre o livro
Chaos rattles our arrogance, shakes loose the dust, breaks rigor mortis. In chaos, you find out who you are—what matters, what you fear, what you love…
Here is a collection of nine short stories about chaos in multiple genres: historical, speculative, stream-of-consciousness, poetic, literary, and more.
- Morty loves his job. Really loves it. Perhaps not so strange, except that he is an embalmer at a funeral home. What happens when someone loves their job so much they don’t want to do anything else?
- Becky’s husband is away on business, in the cold of a snowy winter, when her youngest of four girls develops diphtheria. In the late 1800s, what can a young mother do?
- What if everyone had a hat but you? And it really mattered?
- Poor Charlie. He really needs order in his life. He prides himself on schedule, structure, and sameness. So did his grandmother…and they found her dead in a house crawling with thousands of insects she had collected.
Included stories: “Three Days,” “Turn and Face the Change,” ‘Three Hours and Thirteen Minutes,” “Ringing,” “Hats,” “Preparation,” “Ten More Days,” “Behind the Bar,” “What Does the River Say?”
