Whisper Back - The Waiting by James G Kelly

The Waiting is today's creepy story. It was written by James G Kelly, who is the author of the novel THE SCARECROW, available now at Barnes & Noble. Thank you, Jim!

If you'd like to share your own short work of horror fiction with the CLMW audience, you can submit your story via email here. I look forward to hearing from you.

Finally, I'd love it if you'd share your thoughts on the show through the comments link below- it's one of the ways I gauge how the show is going and what direction I'd like to take it in. Thank you for listening!

Great gruesome fun! I recently read his novel and it's equally terrifying!

You did an excellent job with the story, Russell. Thanks for putting it on Whisper Back. I hadn't realized just how creepy it is until I heard you reading it. Thanks again,

Oh very creepy indeed. I think she really took it to the next level as well, not only cannibalism but incestial cannabilism, I mean that is really stretching what the stomach can take.

I loved it!

Truly creepy! Nice work both Russell and Mr Kelly! I got goosebumps, lol.

And just to touch on what you said Russell about possesion being a fear? For some reason mine is doppelgangers.. go figure. Does that stir a story in anyone? I sure hope so :)

Keep em coming and I'll keep listening!

Oooh... I never thought of doing a doppelganger story... great suggestion, Heather. I'll have to let that one stew a while and see what comes to mind.

I'm real sorry to say that it wasn't quite what I expected. Maybe I wasn't in the right mood when I listened to this show.

I have to say that I loved it. A bit creepy since cannibalism turns my stomach and I usually wont read it. I think it was great and had a nice twist.

I also liked his book. I am hoping I can get a signed copy.

Keep Writting Mr. Kelly.

And keep reading Mr. Burt you do a wonderful job.

Yeah, I concur! It goes along with my old joke that I do like children... deep fried and dipped in chocolate.

Possession is one of my fears, too. But that doppelganger suggestion gets my brain to plowing. All my life, people have been telling me that there's someone here in Nashville that looks just like me. My own father saw her once and nearly turned the car around to ask me why I wasn't at work. How scary is that? I've got to write something about that myself.

I'll have to check out The Scarecrow sometime.
