I Killed My Friends and It Thrilled Me
Walden and Hyde (and Other Short Stories)
Death's Last Days with the Dying
This spin-off series of the debut novel chronicles Death's memories in Cinnabar City. How does a day of reaping go by? Is it boring? Is it sad? Is it exciting? Are there any surprises waiting camouflaging with the shadows?
Daniel and Nathaniel, brothers from different mothers, friends since they were toddlers, and neighbors since forever. They played ball even under the rain because they were stubborn little boys. They teased each other about whose prom date was ugly because they were cocky little boys.
Henry woke up inside a ring of peach trees with fruits ready for plucking or surrendering to gravity. Shrubs of pink and orange flowers lay at the feet of the trees. Mockingjays and bluebirds chirped a welcome song. Birds of paradise flew in a circle above him.
For 30 days and 29 nights, Henry and Filipa made love on the sea. An uninvited storm interrupted what could've been their 30th night of love-making. Despite the warning by the radio of the approaching storm that morning, Henry sailed on, believing he shouldn't turn his back on his new life that soon.
Nothing killed Henry's soul more than being trapped on earth. He was tired of the jungle, both the city and the literal one. He also was tired of the fake adventure and outdoor photos on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Videos on YouTube couldn't satisfy his salty yearning any longer. He knew he could do better.
