Checkmate! How feverishly brutal can one marriage become? Charles and Clare, an elderly Seattle couple, provide us with the answer to this riddle in Checkmate! Charles, with his failing eyesight and frustrating deafness parses with Clare, his beauty-queen wife of past, as she plots her escape from the richly appointed manor which has become her prison. Checkmate! When is a marriage worth more than a thirty-six dollar check, but less than a successful chess move?
Lightning Strikes. Poor Dennis Sheridan, Florida-native. Considering what he has been through he does not need a suspicious officer of the law on his doorstep asking about his wife of twenty-eight years; particularly as he brushes the dirt from her grave off of his hands.
Grove of Terror. The perfect Halloween story! Headless Pirates, cunning and cruel overtake one Union soldier's greed. Learn just why The Ghost Coast of the Carolina's is so aptly named. This story comes from historical archives as a death bed tale, told in 1907.
