Once Joe Was Human


Once Joe was human, working as a successful businessman in NYC. He worked as a stockbroker on Wall Street and wore Brooks Brothers suits and a Rolex watch. He lived with his wife and son in a luxury apartment on Park Avenue and dined in the finest restaurants. His upscale lifestyle demanded he meet many deadlines, quotas and commitments. He was in constant competition with his peers in a dog eat dog world.

Today Joe no longer wears suits but shambles about in his underwear. He still lives in a dog eat dog world but now he is an oozing, drooling, stinking vessel of rotting flesh. He spends each day and night doing one thing, trying to satisfy his eternal, ravenous hunger. It wasn’t personal, but his wife ate their son, and he ate his wife. Joe no longer conducts financial seminars for clients, now he only grunts unintelligibly. He wanders the streets of Manhattan hoping to sink his three remaining teeth into a sliver of maggot infested roadkill he won’t have to share with something else.

Life is simple. No more back stabbing and kissing ass. Just eat, eat, eat.

About billywellshorror@gmail.com

I have written 171 short stories so far in my quest to exceed Ray Bradbury's 400 short stories. It goes without saying it will be an uphill climb. My web site, billywellshorror.com, includes sample stories from all ten horror story collections. Since reviews are the life's blood of every author, I would greatly appreciate a review of any of my books on Amazon.com and hold anyone who does in high esteem for all eternity. Stephen King is my favorite horror writer, and I admire what King has accomplished in the horror genre in terms of movies made from his considerable volume of work. My Coffeesmoke channel on You Tube has amassed over 2,600,000 hits, mostly from my "Dead Celebrities" videos. I love movies and had seen over 1,500 by the age of 13 when there was snow on 13 channels after midnight. My favorite horror movies are Halloween, Night of the Living Dead, and the Evil Dead. My favorite movie of all time Is Frank Capra's It's A Wonderful Life with James Stewart. My favorite authors are Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, John Sandford, Michael Connelly, Robert B. Parker , Clive Cussler, James Patterson, Jeffery Deaver, Dean Koontz, Edgar Allen Poe, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, James Lee Burke, Richard Matheson, Lee Child, Jack Ketchum& Jack Kilborn/Konrath.
