Throwback Thursday: the trailer for the original “Westworld” (1973)!

Today’s Throwback Thursday is something that I don’t actually remember — the trailer for 1973’s “Westworld” was a bit before my time.  But this was too good not to share.  (I’ve been on a weird “Westworld” kick lately — probably because I recently happened across this quite promising trailer for the brilliant HBO remake’s third season.) 

It’s funny seeing the same plot setup and motifs for the campy-looking original film (which was, surprisingly, written and directed by Michael Crichton).  I must say that Yul Brynner looks like he made a pretty decent bad guy, though.

 

My “Hungry Hannah” horror short appears over at A Story In 100 Words!

The nice folks over at A Story In 100 Words have published a new science fiction/horror flash fiction tale of mine.  Its title is “Hungry Hannah,” and it’s my own riff on the creepy doll trope.  You can find it right here.   (If you’d like to take a look, however, please note beforehand that it does depict extreme violence.)

A Story In 100 Words is a terrific site devoted to 100-word stories.  Its goal is to illustrate the “power of flash fiction, both as a storytelling art form in and of itself, and also as a writing exercise.”  I’ve found it’s a great place to peruse a variety of great voices in indie lit.

Give the site a look!  The nature of the work there means you can enjoy a complete story in only a few moments, and it’s loads of fun.
