Includes my short story “Death Cat Saves Halloween”
In the modern world, magic has become a thing of fairytales and legend, forcing spell casters to take their craft underground, living in secluded areas, abandoned buildings, and back alleys. Or…in trendy apartment complexes populated with partying college-aged coeds, practically begging to be discovered by the outside world. This story follows the latter.
From the publisher:
An anthology of humorous stories in the Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror genres.
Alternate Hilarities was originally a small press fan-zine in the early nineties of funny stories in my favorite genres, Science fiction, Fantasy and Horror. Six issues were produced against my ex-wife’s express wishes. And they were terrible! Just Terrible!
It had a semi professional look but proofing was not my strong suit. I had no funds to hire a proof reader and let’s face it, volunteers suck. But the stories were great. Many talented authors sent in great funny stories. With concepts like games show in the afterlife, the last man alive and the secret life of a teenaged mad scientist.
But in the end, the cost of publishing my pet project became too much and the zine was retired.
Now, two decades later, the overhead and distribution issues of the small press have almost disappeared with the advent of eBooks. With a new partner in crime who can do line edits, I decided to give my old love a second shot.
So, here it is, The New and Improved Alternate Hilarities. We have Alien invasions and Abductions, Time Travel, Ghost Ships, Demonic Possessions, Flatulent Clowns, Body Switching, Talking Monkeys and Feghoots.
So off we go. With Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror and Hilarities for all!
