CRIMEUCOPIA – As In Funny Ha-Ha, Or Just Peculiar


After Monday and Tuesday, even the Calendar says WTF…


There comes a time when the amount of unusual submissions gets you to thinking: How can we use this stuff?


The answer is, of course, when you get enough to put together a collection of short fiction that will hopefully make you go Hmmmmm.


Of course that doesn’t mean every piece in here has been written with a psychotic eye for Avant-garde detail. Okay, well, maybe some have – the Law of Percentages would dictate for one thing – and there is also the fact that writers are, well, to put it bluntly, often overly surreal in their inventiveness at times.


But that’s certainly no reason to just leave these stories on the side in the hope that they will wander off of their own accord.


Of the 21 writers within these pages, it would be fair to say that none wrote their pieces specifically for this anthology. However, if it had not of been for them taking a gamble, then this collection would not be seeing the light of day.


Hopefully contained within is something to make you laugh, smile, groan, pause for thought, or make you willing to step out of your comfort zones to read and enjoy something totally new.


In the spirit of the Murderous Ink Press motto – “You never know what you like until you read it.”
