Description

“Oh delicious,” Page of Buckets whispered as she approached. Five of Poles moved around the yard in chaos. She crawled under a trailer and waited as she knew that eventually one would fall; they always did. She grinned as a thought came to mind.
A rusty grappling hook pierced the fallen youth through the leg; his blood seeped onto the ground. He let out a cry of alarm, but the others were too caught up in their mission of stacking the tent poles. She pulled him under the trailer.
She ripped pieces of his flesh with the sharp hook, and alternately devoured the meat and fed the piranha dancing in her bucket. Soon the water was as red as the blood that pooled in the dirt. Now her stomach was full of warm flesh, but she was not done with her game.

Charles W. Jones grew up in a town of 500 people–Shoshoni, WY. It’s the Center of the Universe, or so he thought growing up since it is in the exact center of the state. There were quite a few “characters” in his hometown, and it was one of those places that everyone knows your business. The thing that stuck with him the most was, how dark it was at night. Charles was a jumpy kid at night. Anything that moved in the dark, any sound made his heart pound in his chest. Thunder had the same effect. His first book, The Second Plain, was extremely influenced by his hometown. Most of it is actually set there. Darkness is a deep influence for him and has Shoshoni to thank for it.
