We all know a grammar nazi or two in our lives, but imagine if someone in the writing community actually snapped and started punishing people for their mistakes?
Well, that’s exactly what this short story is about. A woman who literally snaps and start murdering writers for their errors.
Fireside Chat with a Grammer Nazi Serial Killer (Release Date: Jan. 14th, 2019)
Seventeen gruesome killings across the United States, within a span of six months and there is one clear connection among victims. They were all writers.
While media is decorating the murders with sensationalist stories, and law enforcement is playing catch-up, the homicidal maniac remains elusive and secretive.
Things get very interesting, when one day she decides to appear on an internet talk show for an honest fireside chat.

“Please, I have two kids. Please…let me go,” Stella pleaded…
“Are you asking me a question or is that a declarative statement? I can’t decide.”
This short story is a clever and horrific twist on the whole “Grammar Nazi” thing. The fireside chat in question, takes place on the Dark Net and is viewed by the worst of the worst. The host is thrilled to have an actual serial killer appear on his show, but he gets a lot more than he bargained for with the woman who has butchered writers all over the country.
Short stories are alway a bit tricky. It’s difficult to get a whole picture, or fully developed characters. I think this author did a pretty good job with our serial killer, but I would have been happier with some more background on her. I did however, really enjoy her interview and I loved the twist at the end.
Overall, a gruesome short story, with a clever hook, but perhaps it could have been a tad longer, more developed.
Rating… B or 3.5 Stars
