The Early Experiments - Brain Jar Press Short Fiction Lab #0
Publisher: Brain Jar Press
Often strange, always unforgettable, this mini-collection brings together four short tales featuring spacefaring dinosaurs, bullet catchers, ghosts, and brides from the land of bees.
Upon Discovering of A Ghost in the Five Star
There's a ghost in the Five Star Laundromat. The worst thing you can do is accept her balloon when she tries to give it to you. Nick's interest in the dead girl is causing problems with his boyfriend… but he isn't sure he's ready to give her up just yet.
Phil thinks he can catch a bullet as a party trick, but he needs someone to pull the trigger. Mattie isn't sure he's got what it takes to fire the antique Luger at his friend, but he's also caught a glimpse of the bats living inside Phil's skull and knows what it means if they get out.
The Place Beyond the Brambles
The women who emerge from the land beyond the brambles are always strange and always beautiful. They're also prone to returning home, long before the men who marry them hope they will depart. Ethan's wife has done exactly that, leaving behind a daughter and memories that only Ethan can recall.
The Things You Do When The War Breaks Out
Henry and his dad are going to the moon for a holiday. The dinosaurs who occupy the dark side of the moon are no longer content to share it with humanity. When war breaks out and the moon is evacuated, Henry's father sees an opportunity to resolve some old grudges.
