    There was an uncomfortable silence on the other end of the phone when I asked the telemarketer if his cleaning service could get blood out of ceiling tiles.


    While I was writing this, Pandora served up Eno's "Baby's On Fire." I think that would qualify for this thread:

    Baby's on fire
    Better throw her in the water
    Look at her laughing
    Like a heifer to the slaughter
    When a Vampire Jehovah's Witness knocks on your door, don't invite him in.

    Quick Hitts is the only blog that gets you Smartenized.

    He loathed me, and I loved the possibilities that hate presented during the long days living in the same room.

    Sighing, Doug opened the first of his dead mother's journals and read a few lines; eyes widening, he read them again and discovered his mother had lost her mind.

    The sound--high-pitched and shrieking--pushed its way in, and the fat man fell to the floor, writhing as his eardrums shattered.

    The thing that walked in the door at six o'clock wore my husband's face, but its terrible eyes were neither human nor anything close to sane.

    It was one of those days when thunderstorms were rolling in and the light filtering through the clouds overhead had this yellow tinge that makes things look weird.

    Can you even begin to imagine not seeing the sunrise or even any hint of sunlight for a day, a month, a year? How about a hundred years? How about four hundred?

    I haven't even seen the light of a cloudy day since I was turned. But the stars? Oh, I can tell you all about the stars...

    It shouldn't be this easy, I thought as I swung the bat again. It shouldn't be this easy to kill someone.
    There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead.

    Bitchin' Betty began yammering her "Pull up, pull up" monologue as my aircraft rolled into a dive and plummeted toward the waiting sand below.

    "Baby, is that you?" I whispered, waiting with one hand on the door jamb, the other clenched into a fist.

    That's funny, I thought there'd be more blood.

    Bump!

    Setup: Quentin Dallas has just tracked down a nest of ghouls operating an all-night diner and is confronting them as they dig a corpse out of a grave.

    "Are you gonna' eat that?" I asked.

    (from my short story Plots)

    "It's eternity out there," Michael said. "You can't imagine it. It just goes on and on and on. One long endless eternal night." He turned and looked at me with eyes of blood.

    "It's the perfect place for my kind to hunt."

    I looked over my shoulder at the people following. I looked ahead. The look in their eyes told me everything I needed to know and I drew my weapon.

    All those people were willing and we were about to storm the Gates of Hell together. I was prouder than I'd ever been before in my entire life.

    I raised my hand, looked back, and yelled something stupid.

    The in-laws are coming to visit, permanently.



    ... okay, different kind of horror, but it's still a scary first line

    A poisonous millipede raced the length of his jaw and then pausing pulled itself up to move along his lips stopping only to explore his nostrils, delicately poking its long fangs momentarily inside each.
