Eerie E-zine Presents: Issue 4 by Christian Giovanni is a continuation of the ongoing Eerie E-zine Presents tales. Featured in this issue is From the Kitchen to the Grave, and an additional short-short story called The Kitchen Light. Both are entertaining vignettes with supernatural/horror themes. The main story, From the Kitchen to the Grave, tells of a young widow who remains in a funk following the cruel murder of her husband during a burglary a year earlier. Her mother has tried helping her to get on with her life, but she wants nothing to do with “moving on” from the death of her husband. That is, until a visit from a supernatural and hideous looking entity. Its visit makes her relive the horror of that awful night a year ago. The Kitchen Light is about an obsessive-compulsive young lady frightened by a jar of Miracle Whip; it is really quite a bit more entertaining than my description makes it sound.
Both stories in this fourth issue of Eerie E-zine Presents are well written. From the Kitchen to the Grave moves around in time, from a year earlier to the present, but all becomes clear before the story ends. It was a captivating story, and I would not hesitate to recommend it to others. The essence of evil which pervades the story is frighteningly realistic; you may want to double check your door locks. The Kitchen Light is also entertaining, although much shorter. It is an odd blend of an OCD victim’s illogical obsession with unplugging electrical appliances whenever she leaves a room, and the paranormal visitation toying with her sanity. Christian Giovanni has developed a compelling outlet for some very good fiction in his Eerie E-zine Presents series. I urge fans of the supernatural, paranormal, and horror genres to check out Eerie E-zine Presents and download an issue of your choice. I think you’ll be glad you did.
