The Story of Harmless Bullet

Day 26 The Board of Eyes /absurdist comedy/ I never knew the darkness could vibrate – through the waves of macabre curse dancing on its own – wrestling with the mindset of ordinary individuals like me while re-modeling my truly pessimistic reality. No doubt, a combination of increasing wealth, foreign stimulation, and political instability throughout the Warrior Farm allowed that darkness to flourish. I felt how the air sang and...

Day 22 Evolution of Marriage /absurdist comedy/  Nothing is more terrifying than the sudden and unpredictable change, especially the loss of freedom. That’s why we are so frightened by marriage.  Everything around me went black for a moment. The pores all over my body – disturbed, spongy, sieve-like – gave a strange, long, quite loud noise when a six-foot rubber hose was taken out from the right sleeve of Ms....

The Sudden Killer or the Tragedy of Kerstin Lund

“Nobody’s ever been arrested for a murder; they have only ever been arrested for not planning it properly.” Terry Hayes I’m sharing the prologue to my upcoming novel, ‘Eyebrow Killer.’ Prologue On a summer evening in 2001, Kerstin Lund murdered her parents with an ax. She was 15 years old at the time. The family lived in the small Norwegian fishing village Henningsvær. It had been best known for its...

Day 19 Some Peculiar Ways of Love /absurdist comedy/   ‘Love is the best medicine’ – who would disagree with this famous statement? Nothing changes our moods, effectively reduces stress, bolsters the ego, relieves backache, or lifts our self-esteem better than a good ol’ love. After hours of indescribable pleasure, where each breath obeyed to my rhythm and tempo, I crawled to the couch near the window, frightened that I’d have...

Day 17 A Dope Party /absurdist comedy/ When I poked out from the intimate saloon of Mrs. WickedBreaker, it was as bright as day – the moon was shining. Then a cool breeze began to blow, and soon enough, the clouds covered the sky. I tried to sit down on the bench under the tree (it was a healthy motion my tired body needed, knowing what was to come), but...

Crime & Comedy

After some consideration, I decided that the next book will be Eyebrow Killer – a humorous crime novel. I prepared the blurb and the cover, but the book isn’t ready yet… We – Ray and Aiki – are starting to work on the second draft this August. Yay! I’m planning to publish it in December 2021. Year: 2015 Place: Amsterdam A detective with a phobia and a clever, obsessed killer clash...

Literature – with or without ‘writing style’

#guestpost written by Laolu Ogundele  “So, what’s your style”? Someone once asked me in the middle of a neighborhood writers meetup I attended a decade or so ago. “Straight jeans, dark-colored zip hoodies, and basketball shoes…” I began, but my voice trailed off as I noticed a couple of people try hard and fail to stifle a laugh. “I mean writing style,” the original asker graciously clarified. “Oh, my bad....

Day 15 Miss Sedative & Co /absurdist comedy/   The four of us were sitting outside on the pool terrace, with a mojito in hand, desperately trying to find a common topic for conversation.  “Arcadio, where did you learn to create such a high wave of sexual latitudes? It was quite incredible,” Martha asked, testing my reaction or perhaps out of idle curiosity.  “Just following the wind, sweetheart,” he grinned. ...
