Cherry Wood Coffin, by Eugenia Triantafyllou

★★★☆☆ Honorable Mention

(Horror) The coffin maker hears voices three days before people die, telling him what sort of coffin to make. There are good reasons to listen to those voices. (727 words; Time: 02m)

"Cherry Wood Coffin," by (edited by Jason Sizemore), appeared in issue 108, published on .

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Quite a surprise to learn the coffin maker can create zombies, and nicely foreshadowed that there was something wrong with his wife.

The pain of the mother about to lose her son is deeply touching.

Con: Effective as the shock is, there’s nothing to the story besides that (which is unsurprising given the length).
