“The Look on Your Face”
Short Story in They Keep Killing Glenn
Edited by Peter David & Kathleen O'Shea David
What did Glenn do to make so many people want to kill him? Nothing, really. He just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
A tossed-off joke resulted in Glenn Hauman, one of the most prominent members of Crazy 8 Press (and certainly the tallest), becoming the target of nearly two dozen of the most demented names in science fiction:
David Gerrold • David Mack • Joe Corallo
Robert Greenberger • Russ Colchamiro • Keith R.A. DeCandido
Dean Scott • Mary Fan • Kathleen O’Shea David
Setsu Uzumé • Lorraine J. Anderson • Hildy Silverman
Aaron Rosenberg • Blair Learn • Brett Hudgins
S. Brady Calhoun • Michael Jan Friedman • Amy Lewanski
Jenifer Purcell Rosenberg • Paul Kupperberg • Peter David
Each of these authors set about to kill Glenn in their own inimitable fashion. Some went bloody. Some went metaphysical. Some went accidental. Some went very, very deliberate. Never has one person been killed by so many.
So what are you waiting for? Start reading, and see which is your favorite in the end. Glenn’s end, that is. And end… and end… and end….
