Sweet Christmas Hell
All us will say,
Throw cares away!
Christmas is near,
Bring holiday fear
To young and old
Snippets to be told!
Ding dong... ding dong
Horror we bring
One seems to hear
Screaming in fear
Filling the air.
Oh how spirits pound,
Raising the sound,
O'er hill and dale,
Telling their tale.
Gaily they write
Of people’s fright
Snippets of fear,
Christmas is here.
Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas,
Scary, scary, Scary, Scary Christmas.
And who is Death? What does he like—how does he like his tea, does he really like using a scythe, is Death even gendered?

Find out answers to these questions and more, as authors from all over the world pursue Death in this collection of 100-word stories from Black Ink Fiction. When the Reaperman knocks, what will you do?
New from Black Ink Fiction!Join the adventure through the wasteland of the world, where the only real goal is staying alive.
