Dripping Crackers

25 pages21 minutes


Dying’s easy. Comedy’s hard. So goes the life – and death – of Neddy Stuart, one of the most controversial comedians of all time. We could see what happened onstage with him every night: in-your-face performances as pure in their rage as any in the history of shock comedy. But what happened later, after the curtain fell? What happened in the basement of his home that one horrifying night?

Tabloid reporter Bolton Marston has sworn to tell the tale on national TV. But as he assembles footage and interviews chronicling Neddy’s disturbing life story, Bolt sees something no one else has seen. Discovered a truth no one else has found. And only then will the laughter finally stop.

This story received Honorable Mention in the Year’s Best Fantasy & Horror anthology series
