Shannon Shee starves her own shadow. Persephone, a girl made of chocolate whose parents use her body to supply their candy shop, finds a way to end it all. Each character in Weevil and Nightshade's Compendium of Farables and Tales is one burdened with an uncanny quality, defect or mutation that eventually results in a moral or ethical decision of a dark and complex nature. Yes, they are fairy tales for teens and adults but Weevil's characters confront current societal issues: self-confidence, loose tongues, parenting, enslavement, abuse, eating disorders, trust, faith, abandonment, suicide, greed, sacrifice, relationships, redemption, conformity and individuality, among others. At once whimsical, inventive and insightful, the collection, emotionally-informative commentary cloaked in the skillful words of a storyteller whose characters cross the boundaries of reality, provides a touch of the offbeat. Those who miss the imagination of a child listening to a story but who want a little food for thought, maybe a chocolate arm, will be delighted. Weevil is an 80-page, illustrated collection of seven farables that Mark Roush self-published in November, 2012. He is a writer and film director by trade and has written two optioned screenplays: Night of the Maelstrom and The Vastness. He has also written and directed several short films: I am Lloyd Hamlin; Storage; the webseries Lady Wasteland, which has garnered more than one million views; and Persephone, which is based off the Weevil collection farable Both Bitter and Sweet Was Persephone Inside Most Incomplete.
