Just another reminder — today sees the release of An Apple for the Creature, a great little anthology filled with stories by Charlaine Harris, Ilona Andrews, Mike Carey, and others. Including me! My little tale is called “Sympathy for the Bones” and is about a young girl who must free her soul from the witch who raised her.
And now, some entertainment. We found some great short films online that range from zombies (vs. dogs) to cats on Mars, and a web series about a man who sits in a booth in a restaurant, and grants wishes — for a price.
First up, via io9, this short animated film about…well, cats who live on Mars, and who befriend a NASA rover. Really kooky and adorable:
Next, a short film called PLAY DEAD, which tells the stories of several different dogs when zombies come to town. It doesn’t play out quite as we expected, given the set-up — and, a warning, it’s quite bloody — but there are some genuinely fun moments in the film.
Finally, I recommend THE BOOTH AT THE END, which is utterly chilling without even a hint of gore or violence. It’s just two people talking. Actually, a bunch of people taking turns talking to just one man — a man with a singular ability — and it is really, really, good.
