Love, Lust, Passion, and Obsession: The Human Condition -- The Darkest of Deceits. The seductive style with which Ms. Gardner writes is stimulating in an intellectual sense, but softened by emotion. Immersion into Gardner’s macabre settings is inevitable for the reader. She writes with the eloquence of a literary master, uncovering the beauty that lies within the grotesque.” BreeniBooks Now, some might say Ms. Gardner is a little touched in the head, clinically disturbed, that is, and some might say that she goes way beyond a mild case of scab-picker. Just between you and me, it’s the company she keeps. She knows a guy, who knows this other guy, who knows a guy’s cousin or something, who can sit for hours in a corner, extracting the fossilized dust mite lint from his belly button. It’s the only way he can get a quiet moment. All those damn voices, blathering at him all the time, who wouldn’t want to hurt them, hurt them all, and hurt them bad. And that guy she knows, who knows that other guy with the frizzy hair and the lint fetish, he is mercilessly cruel: killed, tortured, and maimed cruel. He’s had characters lie, cheat, steal, and self-flagellate all in the name of a story. That’s right. He’s even had little girls in frilly dresses eat turd and dead rat kebabs. You see, there’s Cheryl Anne Gardner and there’s him, and they’ve got this thing they do. Been doing it since they were kids. They’re not afraid to go there, wherever there might be, no matter how dark, dank, or putrid. They’ve got their suitcases packed -- all liquorice and lace knickers -- because that’s what it takes. Flash Fiction Stories in this collection include The Duskhouse, Beware of Dog, Persian Cat, the prize winning Debt Collectors, and many other previously published and never before seen in print tales of the ludicrous, the absurd, and the macabre.

From the Author:

Bending and Blending Genres, Kitsch and The Duskhouse flash fiction collections blow the lid off all preconceived ideas about relationships. Embracing a manic variety of narrative voices and points of view, these micro stories lurch frighteningly through time and space, from character to character, and from topic to topic, the words put to page, at one turn, a poetic treatise to language, and at the next turn a horrific and pointed exploration of what it means to be human. It's anarchy. Characters, in the moment, expressing the truth they have come to know: Love, Lust, Passion, and Obsession: The Human Condition -- The Darkest of Deceits -- the ludicrous, the absurd, and the macabre.

About the Author:

Cheryl Anne Gardner is a hopeless dark romantic, lives in a haunted house, and often channels the spirits of Poe, Kafka, and de Sade. She prefers novellas and flash fiction to writing bios because she always seems to forget what point of view she is in. When she isn't writing, she likes to chase marbles on a glass floor, eat lint, play with sharp objects, and make taxidermy dioramas with dead flies. Her writing has been described as "beautifully grotesque," her characters "deliciously disturbed." Her short fiction has been published in dozens of journals including Dustbin, Hobo Pancakes, Carnage Conservatory, Pure Slush, Negative Suck, Danse Macabre, and at The Molotov Cocktail among others. She lives with her husband on the East Coast USA, and she is currently the head fiction editor at Apocrypha and Abstractions Literary Journal.
