College Man is a college drop out, cleaning rooms in a city hotel for spare change. It’s not too bad a job – he gets to work alone and management are all right. His coasting comes to an end when he opens up a room one day to find a dead body and a bag of drugs. A big bag of drugs… (Read more.)

— Hello! Housekeeping!

Hello! Housekeeping! is published in Volume 4 Issue 1 of The Dark City – a concept magazine where every story included occurs within the seedy underbelly of the same anonymous city of the title.

You can buy the magazine in digital form for your Kindle or from Magzter, or you can read my story for free here.
