Time Twist
Joe R. Lansdale 
writing as M. Dean Bayer


Thinking back on how George Bradley had almost been hit by a car, Alonzo Webb knew immediately that he had the perfect solution to his wife’s affair. He would murder her lover, three days ago. 


The Ticket


Ronald was frightened because he had lost his ticket. His wife was a tyrant about such things and he feared having to hear her bitch so much, he was thinking about running away from home, but that didn’t satisfy him either because she might catch him and then there would really be hell to pay. He stood outside his house in the shadows and wondered where the ticket might be. He had searched all his pockets and had turned his wallet inside out looking for it. He remembered getting it and putting it on his person, but he could not remember where, and now he was sure it did not matter anyway because he had lost it somehow. Maybe when he took change out to buy a Coke.

All he knew was it was gone and his wife who collected these things for her records would be waiting behind the door, sitting in the chair by the table with that disapproving look on her face—or was that her normal look? He could not remember seeing her any other way now—and she would stand very slowly, put one hand on the table, lean towards him and say smugly, hoping that he would not have it, “Where’s your ticket?”


El Diablo
A General Proposal


A man is hanged at midnight by a mob on October the 31st. An evil highway man named Jack Sanders. He is cut down by the devil himself, and for amusement, the devil, breathes life into his chest.

The man revives, one foot in hell, one on earth. He calls himself The Hanged Man and he is the devil’s servant. He roams the Southwest, leading a gang of ruthless outlaws, looting, raping, murdering. Even the army is afraid of them.
