A couple of white trash guys try to survive the chaos of a flood that washed some dead bodies onto the lawn. One decides this is the prime opportunity to get rid of his drunken, drug addled wife. Soon however, the tables are turned. Jamie does some impressive work in the character designs. His style is quite striking. His depiction of rain and the trees surrounding the house are spooky. The dialogue tends to be rather long winded, but the story gets told.


An amusing tale of a man who spent his childhood hanging out at his Uncles chatting with the neighbour. It just so happens that the neighbour is question is the one and only Satan. This is a short, funny and well drawn. Satan seems like a nice, if strange, guy until the noise of the Uncle's lawn mower provokes some mindless violence from the neighbour. Jamie's script here is a wonderful piece of deadpan writing, with the narrator matter-of-factly commenting ...after that, Beelzebub and I drifted apart.

Jamie tells us that he is looking for an outlet for his work. Well, if you edit an anthology or some such publication you'd better look him up, your readers will thank you for it.

In a Word: Wry.
