E. R. BILLS - Pendulum Grim




Sunday, February 9 at 5 PM

speaking & signing
Pendulum Grim






An exotic fortune cookie-maker hangs up her rolling pin to spare customers the horrifying truth. A dying man comes to terms with the Halloween inside to survive. A woman finds Ambrose Bierce's diary and resolves to break its curse by making her death the final entry. A long-dead lynching victim returns to punish the men responsible for his grotesque execution. The stories in E. R. Bills' first turn at horror fiction showcase an unsettling new voice in the genre.
