I said yesterday that there would be more new release announcements coming up and here is the next one.
It’s another collection of short stories – three this time – to come out of the July Short Story Challenge, where I wrote a short story per day in July 2015.
One thing I noticed while writing so many stories in such a short period of time was that my critical side completely shut down after a while and my creative side came out to play. A lot of the stories I wrote during this time were unusual, a handful were downright bizarre.
Operation Rubber Ducky collects the three strangest stories to come out of the July Short Story Challenge. It collects stories of Kaiju, Trojan rubber ducks, anthropomorphic ducks working as mob enforcers and fluffy killer bunnies from outer space who are trying to conquer the Earth and exploit our mental health system for their nefarious ends, while they’re at it.
In short, these stories are strange, weird, bizarre and completely offbeat:
When the world is besieged by Kaiju, the only weapon that can stop them turns out to be a rubber ducky with a deadly secret…
His name is whispered in terror: Mock Duck, the mad axe-man of Chinatown, deadly enforcer for the triads. No one has ever seen his face and lived to tell the tale. Which is probably for the better, because Mock Duck’s nickname is more accurate than anybody could have guessed…
It’s the latest psychiatric epidemic to sweep the nation: Angoraphobia, a pathological fear of fluffy angora sweaters. Those who suffer from the disorder claim that fluffy killer rabbits from outer space are trying to conquer the Earth and exterminate humanity. Are they merely deluded or could they perchance be right?
