I am pleased to report that my short story, Little Dead Girl, is included in Trigger Warning #6As you can probably gather, I wrote Little Dead Girl when I was in living in China. I tried to convey some of the isolation and disassociation you feel when immersed in a different culture, and the surreal sense of unreality that permeates everything you do. The artist who illustrated the story, John Skewes, captures the mood perfectly.
Little Dead Girl was yet another story based on one of my fucked up dreams, probably inspired by the evil Little Emperors I was teaching at the time. Believe me, some of them deserved to be kicked down a flight of stairs or three. To this day, I can still remember the dream vividly, and it still gives me chills.
