Screaming to Get Out & Other Wailings of the Damned
by J. F. Gonzalez
A man wanted for the murder of his young son takes a woman hostage in her home and realizes she’s hiding her own dark secret. In a glimpse of a possible future, a young girl must survive by her instincts if she wants to eat and keep a roof over her head. A college student realizes the invisible thing creating havoc throughout the world is a direct result of not sticking up for the most picked-on kid in school who also happened to be a scientific genius. A man begins to realize his new job isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be when his boss begins demanding things most employers wouldn’t demand from their employees. And a young couple’s obsession with a critically-acclaimed artist proves deadly as the tattoos they’ve acquired from the artist himself take on a life of their own.
