The Talent Show

by Leah R Cutter

Edmund Alexander Montgomery, IV, works on the committee for the annual funeral director's convention at the Crossroads Hotel.

His job? Handle any emergency the humans at the convention throw at him.

Even when Elvis and the Impersonators, the headliners for the convention, cancel.

He will survive this. Even if it involves funeral directors. Performing.

"The Talent Show" asks, and tries to answer that most serious of questions, what do you call a collection of funeral directors?

Part of the Uncollected Anthology, Issue 20: Crossroads Hotel.

Publisher: Knotted Road Press
