It’s with immense delight that I share this very strange, twisted tale with you. Godly Business is a story about a business man, Eddie Rednick, who discovers God’s gigantic corpse and decides to take advantage of this most (un)holy of business opportunities. If you enjoy the Grotesque, the Weird, and Unpredictable, consider reading this tale here: https://www.penumbric.com/currentissue/jamesBusiness.html
Penumbric Speculative Fiction Magazine is a free, online magazine with plenty of talents to behold. Feel free to dig into the other stories as well.
Thanks for reading this somewhat informal newsletter, fellow readers, writers, and friends.
And keep tuned for my upcoming book, due in just a few short weeks (April 22nd) —- my second short story collection, MATTERS MOST MACABRE. You may even pre-order it for kindle here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08Z7LM8TZ
I took the photograph displayed below. The gentleman at the 1940’s Royal typewriter is Ed.
Ed is dead. Has been for some time. Yet death is no reason for ceasing productivity, no sir! Ed and I are currently working on a new book of short stories. We trade places at the typewriter, inventing many first drafts to what will (hopefully) become published stories of horror, suspense, and all out weirdness.
That’s what Ed and I do, every day.
We are writers of the macabre. Someday, I will be dead like Ed.
But that will not stop me, no indeed! I’ll be clicking and clacking those type-keys with passion and reverence in the basement of Purgatory forever.
PS, if you’d like to purchase my first book, “Daydreams of the Damned: Tales of Horror & Oddity”, you may do so by visiting the Amazon links below. The book is cheap. The stories are wild and imaginative and you are bound to have a good time reading them.
