As you peruse this volume you will notice

that nowhere will you find the phrase:

“And they lived happily ever after.”

This, I assure you, is no oversight;

the stories that follow are not

Fairy-Tales my little friends.

If by some chance you missed the title

of this book ( and I cannot see how ) I must

inform you that these pages contain several

rather unpleasant, ‘hypothetically’ true

cautionary tales- and by cautionary I

mean tales that could not possibly

end more dreadfully for all

of those concerned.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

-Ima Bratt
