Snake Charmer Blues by Keith Anthony Baird







I'm not your average, everyday American. By the time you've finished listening to what I have to say you're going to get that. Sure, I do average, everyday things, but only to go unnoticed while I'm planning and doing the things that aren't. Y'see, I've killed people - for good reasons though. I mean, it'd be plain wrong to just murder someone who didn't deserve it - I'm not a psychopath y'know.

In fact, I fit right in really. If you looked at me, you wouldn't think for a minute I'd bashed in the head of a frail old lady, watched people die in the house fire I lit, or made sure a jumped-up motorhead got crushed to death in the tin can on wheels I 'fixed'.

There are others too, but you'll have buy this little look inside my head to find out the rest of it. Don't want to? Really? Let me just make a note of that ...



Our unnamed character's life changes forever when a carnival comes to their town, bringing the magical and mysterious snake charmers. Upon seeing these magicians up close they become ignited with purpose; to charm the snakes of the world and make it a better place.

Turns out our character doesn't need to look hard to find snakes. Soon they're popping up everywhere and there's no one better to "charm" them than our protagonist who exudes both charm and evil!

This tale soon descend into utter darkness as we follow our crusader on their journey to make the world a better place. Once they have started their quest the know they can never finish.

I had great fun reading this tale, I had no idea of where it was going to lead the plot is as agile as snake on the prowl, it takes you on a action packed fast paced adventure right up to the terrifying conclusion!
