Book Review: I Am Not a Serial Killer

John works in his family's mortuary and has an obsession with serial killers. He wants to be a good person, but fears he is a sociopath, and for years he has suppressed his dark side through a strict system of rules designed to mimic 'normal' behavior.
Then a demon begins stalking his small town and killing people one by one, and John is forced to give in to his darker nature in order to save them. As he struggles to understand the demon and find a way to kill it, his own mind begins to unravel until he fears he may never regain control. Faced with the reality that he is, perhaps, more monstrous than the monster he is fighting, John must make a final stand against the horrors of both the demon and himself.

Bunecdote # 7 - The Alarm Clock

Like any pet and many people I know, rabbits love routine. Actually, let me rephrase that, they love the timely appearance of food. Should food be late, they turn into the best alarm clock known to bunny parents. And they're quite creative about the level of noise and annoyance they use in their endeavour.

Gaming and the Storyteller

(image source:TechnoBuffalo)

Looking at this blog one might think my life revolves around books, writing, and bunnies. While that assumption it is not entirely wrong, it is not completely true either. In recent weeks, I have allowed myself to get distracted with computer games - Skyrim and Lego Lord of the Rings in particular. Two very different games in terms of game play and story depth, yet both managed to appeal to my inner storyteller. One because of its familiar content, the other because of its richness.

Bunecdote # 6 - Hide and Seek

Hide and Seek is one of the first games children play with their parents. At that early stage in life it is more a case of peek-a-boo than actual hiding and seeking, though from the baby's point of view, they have definitely hidden themselves from their unsuspecting parent. When I become a bunny parent, I had not expected that hide and seek is a favourite among rabbits too. Neither did I realise that there are several approaches to the game.
