From the author: New story "Lend Me Hands, Idle and Sharp" out at horror podcast.
An audio version is available for this installment. Listen online →
Tales to Terrify released Episode 472 which contains my story, "Lend Me Hands, Idle and Sharp." This is my third story with them and it probably has the highest murder count. But, you know, that's sort of what happens when your main character discovers trauma turns her fingers into knives. Definite content warnings on this one for sexual violence.
It's a large, crowded room; no windows. An arena--I think. Unfamiliar faces cheer. Raised hands clutch green and white paper. I've forgotten the rules. Maybe never knew them. Words roar. I don't understand this language, not yet. The memory of sweat-lust-dirt lurks on my tongue.
You can also listen to Episode 363 ("Disturbing the Huntsman") and Episode 286 ("First & Second Offerings") for other terrifying tales of mine.
