James McCormick about this anthology: Strangely Funny (edited by Sarah E.Glenn and pulblished by Mystery and Horror, LCC) is an anthology which features stories which try to fuse horror and humor together. It features the work of twenty five writers which take the reader from ridiculous and funny to terrifying, an hilarious journey through the paranormal. Zombies who are finicky eaters, vampires caught between groupies and werewolves, and ghosts with awful decorating tastes await. One tale even shows you how to beat the monster in the closet. The anthology was the brain child of Sarah E. Glenn who has a very amusing tale in there herself entitled Criticus Ex Machina. If you like mixed genre stories and tales that don't take themselves too seriously you will most certainly enjoy this one.
My tale is called Tommy and Trolls, a short fantasy story about a sociopathic and truly unpleasant child sorcerer with mother issues, the Necronomicon (the one we all know was written by the mad Arab Abdul Alhazred)and a spell that backfires with hilarious results. It has received several favorable reviews.
