Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Philip Gordon is having a long, tiring night at work. But it only gets worse when he looks up from the break room table to see himself walking into the room. Horror author C. Dennis Moore’s “Plaything” is a story that delves into the question of identity and memory. How do we know we are who we think we are? How are memories made? And how can we even begin to trust them? This TERRIBLE THRILLS sampler is backed with the short story “Parliament of Jim” which goes even further into the question of identity when Jim wakes up one morning to find himself blind and paralyzed, a consciousness stuck inside an unresponsive body as he is subjected to a trial by the different parts of himself which insist Jim has been doing a horrible job taking care of them and it’s time for someone new to be in charge.
