The Skaggerston Nightmares #97


Watkins first discovered he could tell the future whenever he ate crisps at precisely 11.47am on March 12th 2009. At first, he used this to his advantage, winning the Lottery, and helping to save his aunt's life after a vision of her with cancer caused him to tell her and convince her to get a lump checked out by her GP.

Alas, his crisp-related clairvoyancy did not prevent his death. Eager to retain his special skill, he consumed bag after bag of crisps - one such potato snack becoming lodged in his throat, choking him to death.

An edible assassin.

    Awesome, Twilight zone-ish enough to be hugely enjoyable and engagingly written
