Coffin Humor: A Short Story Amnesia, a funeral parlor, and murder

Coffin Humor: A Short Story

Amnesia can be a shelter against murder.

Brief Synopsis:
Noah awoke in a casket.
The casket was on display in a funeral parlor.
He awoke several times more in the same casket and each time had a conversation with the funeral services practitioner, a strange man named Jeremy Black.
During these exchanges, he became aware that his memory was seriously impaired.

Each time, however, he learned a little bit more about his past.
He also learned that the recovery of his memory would lead to his death.
Problem was: It might already be too late.

S. Painter rates Coffin Humor a FIVE STAR - Short but so enjoyable
Here's her review:
What a great short story! John Brinling was able to pack a wonderful twisting and slightly dark story into something that just flowed and grew into a fabulously entertaining, yet surprising story. With just a few words Mr. Brinling was able to create two full-bodied characters, Noah - the coffin guy, and Jeremy - the "funeral service practitioner". Yet by the end of the story you'll wonder how these two characters changed in such a few words. Mr. Brinling grabbed me with the first few paragraphs and didn't let me go until the last word. I recommend this short story for anyone who loves a fun turn of words, witty come backs, and being twisted and turned as the story quickly moves along. Very good job Mr. Brinling!
