is Laura Ellen Scott's collection offered in installments by Uncannyvalley.
Each of these first three pieces shows just how talented and imaginative Laura is. My favorite so far is "The Brewsters."
Excerpt: The tin screams as we enter forcibly to stand inside damnation. The Brewster children sleep in a pile, stuck together like old candy. Their parents are naked and chattering in the tub of a wringer washer, tipped over. Sometimes I think I want a love like that. They don’t even know we’re here.
