This Week in SHOWCASE #9
by Bruce Bethke
Editor, Stupefying Stories
Welcome to issue #9 of SHOWCASE, the free webzine companion to STUPEFYING STORIES magazine and the STUPEFYING STORIES PRESENTS anthology series. The big news this week is that we’ve just released TWO: The 2nd Annual Horror Special—and more about that in a moment—but first I’d like to try something different, and lead-off with the stories. This week SHOWCASE is proud to bring you:
What really happened on that terrible November day in Dallas? Fifty years later, the truth can finally be revealed...
In April of 2848 a scientific expedition set sail from Stalinpour, to brave the crocodile-infested coast of Greenland and explore the fabled lost city of Broke-Land. But even the ancient legends could not prepare them for the horror they found there...
When she joined the department the older cops warned her there would be one case she would never forget; one crime she could never solve. Then it came in the form of a beautiful young Jane Doe, found murdered by poison, in a crime scene scrubbed so clean there was only one puzzling clue...
It was just a simple Sunday dinner, but when her husband Prince Fürst insisted on inviting her wicked stepmother, Princess Blanche felt entitled to invite the evil witch as well. After all, what could possibly go wrong?
Ladies and Gentlemen of the Board of Directors, esteemed colleagues: there may be some opportunities for improvement here...
Just released: TWO: The 2nd Annual Horror Special
