Stephen Moron Presents: Two Stories

This Moron introduces his overpriced story collection by telling us that it’s a gothic horror, a genre that influenced greats like Dickens, Poe, Shelly and Kafka. Apparently, it also influenced lesser writers. Castle of the Robots is the story of a man who had his middle finger bitten off by his father at birth, and it just gets more ridiculous from there – robots and a sadistic doctor get involved. Apparently this is only an excerpt from a longer story, but I’ll be just fine without the rest of it, thanks. The second story had more potential. People casually discuss whether a man was right in hitting another one, as his dead victim lies in front of them. However, the story goes nowhere and the end is disappointing. (Frandroid Atreides)
