The Life and Times of Butterfly the Lower Back Tattoo
From the pages of this very website comes a collection of twenty-two short stories, filled with characters sincere and simple, clueless and clever, unicorn and lower back tattoo.
In the title story, a lower back tattoo struggles to overcome the crippling discrimination that all of her kind face from the world. In "The Knights of the Four Seasons Fitness Center," a group of adventurers set out on a quest for the Lord of Chaos's rubies and eighty-five percent of their max heart rate. A future historian details the horrible rise of the Lumberjacks in "A Brief History of the Axe Body Spray Crisis." And a hard-boiled detective tries to unravel a string of grisly murders in the terrifying tale of "The Goosebumps Killer."
Here you'll find stories written for the ride between bus stops, the commercial break, the fifteen minutes before the end of your work day, when you're trying to avoid starting another project. Here are stories about sandwich artists and senators, nerds and movie stars, stormtroopers and Draco Malfoys. Here are stories that you can mostly get for free if you bothered sorting through the archives to find them, but collected for you here in one place. Here you'll find good stories that are funny, in that order.
