The Case of the Missing Penis?

Some of you may or may not know that I post a lot of videos on YouTube on the MrDeadmanDt channel. The channel covers news, drama, with some horror and writing trickled in. The’s not really important, though. What is important is that I recent covered a news story where a deceased man’s penis has apparently went missing?

How does that happen? How does a deceased man lose his penis?

I have no clue, but I think it would be interesting for a quick piece of flash fiction. Consider this a writing prompt challenge. Write what you think happened down below in the comments section, and it’ll be shared on a the Deadman’s Tome podcast.

Favorite Zombie Movie and Why?

Some say zombie movies are overrated and overplayed. As much as I enjoy watching brain-eaters wasted away by a barrage of gun fire, I have to admit that perhaps they’re right. But that doesn’t meant that there aren’t a few titles that standout and become our go to favorites, right?

So, I ask you, what are your favorite zombie movies and why?

Horror at Camp Waifu Writing Contest

After revisiting my early nerdy years as an otaku, I thought about how I could blend the horror that Deadman’s Tome publishes and anime together. Then it hit me: Camp Waifu.

THEME:

Submit a short horror story (3000 to 5000 words in length) about what happens at Camp Waifu. Is it a Friday the 13th situation? Is it a trap that leads to a young virgin strapped into a SAW device? Or does it toss away horror for more of a humorous and twisted fate?

RULES:

Entry into the contest starts 8/8/2019 and ends 9/8/2019.

The stories that are entered will be posted on this site where readers can like, comment, and share.

The stories will be uploaded on the site on 9/9/2019 and for 30 days they will compete for the most views, likes and comments.

Too Soon?

With mass shootings increasing in frequency, I wonder if Mr. Deadman Made Me Do It was a bit too soon.

What do I mean?

One of my favorite stories in the collection is about a fictional Mr. Deadman (need to stress that for legal reasons) that talks a basement dwelling incel into shooting up a school.

Now, hold on before you rage quit this post. The story has a twist at the end. A nice pay off that makes things nice.

But this is not the first time Deadman’s Tome has published controversial material. A few years back, we featured a story about a girl that rampaged through a school, leaving behind a trail of dead bodies.

That story is called A Corpse Can’t Laugh by Salem Martin and G. B. Holly

We received negative responses about that story back then, and that leaves me to believe that it is only a matter of time before the soccer moms start coming out of theeir vans for this one.

But let me ask you, what do you think?

Did Mr. Deadman Made Me Do It go too far, or not far enough?

Check it out for yourself and leave a comment below.

Talk around town is that there is a killer doll rampaging through the ghettos of Detroit.

Nintendo Dominated E3

How hard is it to just how games at a video game conference? Apparently, EA and Microsoft missed the plot entirely and as a result gave Nintendo the perfect opportunity to just dominate, which they did.

Nintendo’s Direct showed a stream of constant game play with the occasional blurb of awkward Japanese to English moments, but those moments were made up for exciting announcements such as:

A sequel to Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild in development, Banjo-Kazooie as a character in Smash Ultimate, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Animal Crossing New-Horizons, and more.

Activist Hedge Fund Buys Barnes and Noble!

Barnes and Noble might’ve been just saved!

Barnes and Noble shares had fallen about 25% since last year and has lost over $1 billion dollars. to many of you, this may come as no surprise. Barnes and Noble is dealing with enormous pressure from Amazon, and Barnes and Nobles, at least judging from a stock comparison, just does not have the muscle to deal with it. But, I could be wrong.

Vulture capitalist Paul Singer of Elliot Management bought out Barnes and Noble for roughly $683 million. Mr Singer is described by Fortune Magazine as one of the “smartest and toughest money managers” and by The Independent as “a pioneer in the business of buying up sovereign bonds on the cheap, and then going after countries for unpaid debts.”

Mr. Singer is an activist investor that uses his equity to force certain changes in order to shape a company from a money-bleeding debt machine to something that can actually make a profit. What this means for the employees is anyone’s guess, but I think it’s safe to assume that many waves of changes are about to take place. Barnes and Noble had already put all or most of their full-time employees as part-time to try to cut costs, but that didn’t stop the bleeding.

With a reputation of using his equity for activism, Mr. Singer could radically shape Barnes and Noble and give the brand longevity it needs. Now, whether or not that investment can thrive in a world where Amazon is ramping up the competition is the question I want to end with.

Let me know what you think in the comment section.
