Hollow as Legs

Antique hexes and dead childhood dreams are revived in the mouth of a
raging Connecticut snowstorm. Seven short stories dwell in the pre-math of an apocalypse, where an algal bloom is turning the infected into
hair-covered ghosts.

It is ten days after Christmas morning. The dog days of winter break bring returning college kids on old paths with the townies who never left. An orphan leaves home to brave the storm and start anew after his foster parents fall ill. Waterslides in an abandoned amusement park reminisce on their younger, albeit darker days. An anthropological account follows a plow driver trying to undo digressions with embezzlement while navigating neighborhoods in a night long with library books, 711 wine & Demi Lovato. A women struggles to move on early to cope with the Alzheimer’s that is claiming her father.
