Tiny Little Dispatch

A little while back I had a piece of writing posted on a website for a Horror Under a Hundred theme. The writing had to consist of 100 words. I liked the restrictions of this format so much I am co-opting it for my own. Periodically, I will be posting a Tiny Little Dispatch of horror, fantasy or science fiction. I am doing this because I think it will be fun, but also to provide fodder for this blog. I hope you readers out there enjoy it as well. Who knows, maybe one or two of these will become a future novel, film or short story?

This Tiny Little Dispatch is called Werewolfing.


They had been trekking through the thick woods for nearly an hour.

“I think I’m going to try a call,” Bob said.

“Yeah, this is a good place,” Jake said.

Bob made a long howl.

“Man, that was a great one, “Jake said, “Great night for werewolfing.”

A lone howl echoed amidst the trees. Close.

A rustle in the brush.

A snap.

“I think there’s a werewolf in these-”


The half of Bob that remained was unable to answer.

Jake dropped his gear and ran. He tripped over a leg or branch and tumbled into a withered creek.
