Stories by J. L. Warnock: In Grandfather We Trust from the book Tales of What May Come

November 3, 2020

In Grandfather We Trust is a story from the book Tales of What May Come, which presents future possibilities: strange new sources of knowledge, coming family issues, future dystopia, new laws and new crimes, and the trend toward educational provincialism. In each story lies a kernel of current truth, or perhaps truth yet to be, or even a warning of what may come.

Stories by J. L. Warnock Cold Streets from the book Disquieting Notions

November 2, 2020

If you're the kind of reader who likes the occasional creepy, skin-crawly type of story that makes you look back over your shoulder or sleep with the lights on you'll enjoy these "disquieting" tales. Homicidal maniacs, twisted doctors, murderous misogynists, assorted tortured souls and even evil incarnate inhabit these pages. Perhaps you will recognize someone you know or, Heaven forbid, yourself. So dim your lights, or better yet, read these accounts by candlelight and allow the flickering flame to cast threatening shadows on the walls around you. You are sure to find something to titillate or terrify.

Cold Streets is from the book Disquieting Notions by J. L. Warnock and can be purchased at Magnolia Scents by Design, 106 N Pennsylvania Ave, Independence, KS 67301 or by calling (620) 331-8900. Check out their website: Magnolia Scents by Design
