Then, find yourself a comfortable spot away from the carving knives and get ready to laugh, solve crimes and experience our fourth meal of pure mayhem!
In this second collection of stories from Plan B Magazine, we find tales from around the world and across the span of time. These stories also travel the breadth of human experience, from the innocence of a child to the mind of a bigoted murderer.
Some stories will make you smile while others will make you cringe, but all will take you on a journey into the darkness of the human spirit.
And what a ride it will be.
