Along Comes Scary Rock and Roll Nightmares Book One

Along Comes Scary

Papa’s Got a Brand-New Body Bag [excerpt]

Staci Layne Wilson

Mal went to the bank of drawers. He touched the handle of the one in the middle. “Welcome to the Gratefully Dead Funeral Home,” he said dramatically. “We leave no rock star uninterred.” He gave the drawer a pull, revealing the occupant.

Barry Birdsong did look pretty good, considering what he’d been through in the last 12 hours. First, he’d slammed into a giant oak tree going an estimated 80 mph, which crushed his ribcage and burst his heart open. Then, even though he was clearly dead, he’d been hauled to the local hospital for the official pronouncement. After that, he was bagged, tagged, and taken to the funeral home for embalming. All in all, not a great day for the would-be teen idol.

Barry’s career was just starting to take off. He’d released two moderately successful albums, made the cover of Tiger Beat (in the small square upper-right corner picture, but still), and his latest single, Why Me? was slowly but surely climbing the charts. The Confederate-flag-waving crooner, whose lyrics all had a conservationist message, had been on his way to a gig on his “Good Old Boy” tour of small Southern towns when tragedy (and the tree) struck.

“So sad,” sighed Millicent. “He was handsome.”

Mal was about to cover the corpse back up when a flash of white light momentarily blinded him. “What the—?”

Editorial Reviews


Praise for Rock & Roll Nightmares

"MTV's Headbangers Ball" meets "Tales from the Crypt"; meaning it's perfect entertainment for anyone who's ever played "Stairway to Heaven" backwards to hear the mumbled phrase "Here's to my sweet Satan." —Matthew Chernov,

A groovy five stars! —Candance Nola,
Uncomfortably Dark

Staci Layne Wilson is a savvy curator of selections that prove both smart and entertaining. The plays on words may draw you in, but it's the creativity level on display that is certain to make you stay. —Rebecca Rowland,
Ginger Nuts of Horror
