World's Greatest Dad by Edward Lorn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
His life torn apart by his daughter's murder, Carl thinks all is lost until he starts receiving messages on the surface of his World's Greatest Dad coffee mug. Where will Kimmy's messages take him?
I'm not a huge fan of short stories in general but Edward Lorn knows how to get the most out of the format. World's Greatest Dad feels like an episode of the Outer Limits. Messages from beyond the grave!
Like every good Outer Limits episode, there's a bite you in ass twist to go with the creepiness that comes before. The conclusion is very satisfying, as meat hooks to the neck of a child killer often can be.
Four easy stars. Best of all, it's available for a free download on Goodreads!
