10 Days of Madness Begins at the Leaky Pencil

The madness begins today! For the third year in a row, Chris Allinotte is hosting his “Days of Madness” series at the Leaky Pencil. It’s been extended to ten days and this year’s theme is: Frantic. Chris says, “Whatever meaning you take from this term (frantic) is correct. However, in keeping with past years, I'm looking for human on human horror; leave the monsters at home for this one.”

Today’s kick-off is a double feature with Benjamin Sobieck’s “EVP,”

and my tale of frenzied paranoia, “The Frantic and the Dead.”

There are nine more days of astounding fiction ahead, so please pencil in some time to stop by daily and support all these hard-working writers.

You have done another fantastic job, Chris!


  1. Great piece, Angel. Remember when Chris's theme was "Madness"? The first year, I think. I thought this was exactly that -- a guy fallen totally into madness brought on by his past. No spoilers for anybody, so I won't say more, but it was a fast-paced, thumping good ride.

  2. Fantastic pacing, reslly enjoyed the tale.
