What would you do to get back someone you loved? According to the Roman myth, Orpheus went to Hell—literally—to retrieve his dead wife, only to lose her again when he disregarded Pluto’s warning not to look at her until they reached the surface.
In Don’t Look at Her: Two Twisted Tales of Lost Love you will find two short stories exploring the lengths some will go to in order to regain what they’ve lost. “Blood Brothers” (first published in Flesh and Bone: Rise of the Necromancers, Pill Hill Press, 2010) is the story of three former childhood friends, betrayal, teen angst, and raising the dead. In “Virgil’s Refuge” (first published in Dark Things III, Pill Hill Press, 2010) a lonely old man receives a visitor in the middle of a hurricane, but not the one he’s expecting.
Just as Orpheus learned, however, actions have their consequences. Find out what happens when you look.
