    Sixty-year-old Bob disappeared and ten years later Jessica marri

    Sixty-year-old Bob disappeared and ten years later Jessica marries Sam. Comfortable on their ranch together, they play Scrabble, and all is well until Sam’s letters start rearranging themselves. It must be coincidence—he must just not have noticed what they say. But soon his crossword puzzle’s offering clues in the midst of its answers, and all these words add up to something Sam really doesn’t want to know.

    Short, scary, and ultimately satisfying, Cross Words is a cool tale of love’s sweet words gone wrong and crossed with horror in the evening of life.

    Disclosure: I was lucky enough to find a free ecopy of this short story.

    Choice of picture on the book cover is pretty unactactive and not one I personally would have used, but the story is good. Well written and short enough for a fast read.
