Chuck McKenzie aka Uncle Charles has been doing a wonderfully entertaining series of readings of spooky stories – he has crossed the 30 mark – and now it’s my turn.
‘Spare Parts’ is one of my first published stories, back when I was active in Brisbane’s Vision Writers group and we put out an anthology of members’ work. (2003 – heady days!) It was reprinted in 2011.
Chuck succinctly, knowingly, describes the story thus:
In this dark vision of the near future from Jason Nahrung, cloning technology provides the rich with a steady supply of compatible transplant organs. Healthy hearts, Undamaged livers. Fresh lungs. Finally, anything that threatens your quality of life can be replaced.
With that kind of description, I reckon I’d pay him to do my book blurb!
You can wrap your ears around it at A Touch of the Terrors!
