With horror writer Kaaron Warren reading her short story “The Gibbet Bell”


“Mr. Martin’s aunt died on the gibbet, hung as a witch and left till she rotted. Why is the handle of his bell made from the wood of that gibbet? And why is he so terrified to ring the bell?”

Welcome to day 2 of the 7 days of Halloween 2006. Today Kaaron Warren reads her short story “The Gibbet Bell” and then settles in for a talk about writing.

The Grinding House, Kaaron’s collection of horror, science fiction and fantasy short stories was published in 2005 by CSFG and will be released in North America in 2006. Kaaron has been writing since she was seven, and has produced about 150 short stories. She lives in Canberra, Australia, with her husband, her children, and a very old cat who, at least once, has had another cat die in his place.
