Elevated Madness and Other Stories
John D. Ottini, author
The real world is filled with people who live quiet, productive, uneventful lives. These are not the characters you’ll meet in author John D. Ottini’s world of twisted fiction. Elevated Madness & Other Stories consists of 11 short stories that will amuse, shock, and enlighten you. The twists and turns in each story will keep you guessing until the conclusion, where you’ll be left shaking your head and wondering, “Why didn’t I see that coming?” Stories Include: Find out why a casual meeting in the elevator of a downtown office building turns into “Elevated Madness.” In “A Brotherly Game of Chess,” two brothers use a game of chess to settle a deadly score. The simple and seemly idyllic farm life of Abe and Dell masks a dark secret in “Life among the Fireflies.” In “Late Night Killer,” a mysterious object and a late night visitor with deadly intentions turns one man’s life into a living hell. A mystery author discovers in “Smoke & Mirror” that she’s not the only one who can craft a heart stopping surprise of an ending. In “Professor Homeless,” a teenager discovers that a chance meeting is not what it appears to be. And Much More.
