A man learns a painful and valuable lesson… one finger at a time.
An old couple bickers over disgusting leftovers.
Kids go ignored when they tell their parents about the horrors that lurk in their bedrooms, until it’s too late…

LESSONS AND OTHER MORBID DRABBLES is a collection of 25 100-word shorts that range from darkly comic to downright terrifying and wrong. Some shorts feature ghouls and monsters while others are simply about people behaving very, very badly. Which is scarier? Find out in this sick and twisted collection.

They may only be a few words long, but that doesn’t lessen the bloodshed any…

(Want more drabbles? Lessons II: Another Morbid Drabble Collection is now available.)

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

“It’s hard to write a good story in exactly 100 words. It’s even harder to do it twenty-five times in a row. But Michael Crane pulls it off. He really knows how to hit you in the gut and keep on swinging. I loved this little collection, and I think you will, too.”
–Daniel Pyle, author of DISMEMBER and DOWN THE DRAIN


“I know what you’re thinking – stories in under a 100-words? That sounds ridiculous and unenjoyable. But you’re wrong. Dead wrong. They are morbid, but they’re fun and quick and perfect.”
–Amanda Hocking, author of HOLLOWLAND and the MY BLOOD APPROVES series


A fun collection of stories 25 in all wrote in 100 words each. I’t takes some talent to form a story in 100 words or less and he accomplished it with no problem at all. All for .99 cents is a great buy for entertainment. Lessons was probably my favorite, going to ask the author if I can turn it into a short film, it would be a blast.


At first I was skeptical with the 100 word length, but this was a really entertaining and quick read. I have found a new love, and that’s drabbles. The horror aspects were quite nice and the humor added a nice touch. I also have the second one and will be reading it soon! I hope this author publishes a full length novel in the future.
