James Rumpel’s “Superstition” now in Rabbit Hole V anthology

I’m lucky enough to have my work included in The Rabbit Hole Volume 5: Just…Plain…Weird anthology along with quite a group of talented authors. I especially love the teaser

Welcome to the Rabbit Hole. On our fifth excursion into the warren of the odd, 37 authors lead us down their own little burrows of strangeness : an army of penguins, music that cures, aliens that communicate through old cartoons, images of the future that save, unwanted visions of the now, and, oh yes, it is raining lawyers. All have one thing in common, they are just…plain…weird.
Weird can be funny, weird can be sad, weird can be thoughtful, weird can be mad, but the one thing in common is that weird shares experiences you have, thankfully, never had.
Just be careful, all little bunnies are not nice, but they are memorable.

About the Author
James Rumpel is a retired high school math teacher who enjoys trying to convert some of the odd ideas circling his brain into actual stories.

How the stories came about?
To be honest, I am very superstitious about sports and other things. While not nearly as bad as the story’s MC, I have often wondered if I take my little nuances too far. I decided to write about what might happen if someone did get carried away and, maybe even, had reason to.

Mary answered the door and found her oldest son, Tim, waiting on the doorstep.
“Hi, Mom. Is Tom here?”
Mary rolled her eyes. “It’s Sunday and the game’s on. Of course he’s here?” she snapped.
“Is he watching on the little TV in your basement again?” asked Tim.
“What do you think?” replied Mary. She ushered Tim into the house and led him into the living room. A state-of-the-art fifty-five-inch television occupied most of one wall. The Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers were playing in spectacular high-definition.
