Delmer Fry Turns One Hundred

Got a third story accepted for Pill Hill’s forthcoming Daily Frights 2012: 366 Days of Frightening Flash Fiction. This one’s called “Delmer Fry Turns One Hundred.”

As far as its merits go, at the very least, I’ll hazard that out of everyone on my block who found themselves up after midnight this past Thursday writing a story about a forty-seven-year-old man who is willfully attached to his mother by his umbilical cord and chooses to remain so even after she dies, my story might very well be the best.

I don’t know though. There is that O’Malley kid from down the street. I wonder what he was up to that night….
