A man learns a painful and valuable lesson… one finger at a time.
An old couple bickers over disgusting leftovers.
Kids go ignored when they tell their parents about the horrors that lurk in their bedrooms, until it’s too late…
LESSONS AND OTHER MORBID DRABBLES is a collection of 25 100-word shorts that range from darkly comic to downright terrifying and wrong. Some shorts feature ghouls and monsters while others are simply about people behaving very, very badly. Which is scarier? Find out in this sick and twisted collection.
They may only be a few words long, but that doesn’t lessen the bloodshed any…
What a great, super-fast read! Drabbles are stories in 100 words or less (according to my understanding).
I’ve never read anything like this book, and hadn’t even heard of theconcept of drabbles until someone recommended it. Now, I can’t imagine how I’ve gone so long without them!
They are awesomeness in 100 words – and there’s a TON of them in this book. It’s like getting the Cliff’s Notes version of 25 different books in ten minutes. Crane has written several sequels, too: Lessons II: Another Morbid Drabble Collection, Lessons III: Demonic Dolls and Other Morbid Drabbles, and Lessons IV: The Dead Carnival and Other Morbid Drabbles.
If you like horror, good writing, or out-of-the-box thinking (or all of the above), you will really like this book. Highly recommended!
