In Everyday Psychopaths you find three stories, all three of them containing an everyday psychopath of some kind. The first one is close to a horror story with a dose of dark humor, the short second one is more literary but scary in its own right, and the third one is all dark comedy. Included in this collection is also two samples of my novels, The Wake-Up Call and Hollywood Ass. I hope you like them enough to consider checking them out in full.

The Stories in Everyday Psychopaths

A Killer Date
30 minutes into the date, Sheila thinks there’s magic in the air between her and Terry. She can hardly believe her luck to have met a man who seems to have everything. She wants to pinch her arm and ask herself if it’s too good to be true, but if she did the answer would be: Yes, it is too good to be true, because the truth is actually horrifying…

The Development Talk
Jasper is in for his yearly development talk and he’s feeling very uncomfortable about it. He usually doesn’t like meetings and his manager, Stephen, is kind of creepy. Little does he know how creepy…

Inspirational design sites

At work we try to share the inspiration and often throw around a bunch of new links. Usually I don’t bookmark all of them, but here are a few decent ones.

The Favorite Website Awards is a classic. Here you will find some great and recent websites.

D-lists is a great blog for designers and developers.

A guy with the same name is me, Jonas Eriksson (I think I might need to change mine) has a really good site and inspirational blog.

Hmm…I realize I have to continue this list a bit later…

Have a nice Saturday!
