April is the Month of Tricks
Welcome, curious souls, to a new month at the Cabinet.
In January, if you'll recall, we shared with you a collection of not-so-sweet stories about cake. In February, love (in all its dark, oft-twisty forms) was our theme. And last month, the theme was luck -- bad luck, good luck; luck on the seas and in the circus, luck of a special little girl and luck found waiting in an attic.
And what is the theme this month?
Pull up a chair, brave hearts, and gather 'round -- but be mindful of where you sit, because this month, nothing may be what it seems. For this month, you see, the theme is tricks. Our stories, then, might be of something largely innocent -- childish pranks and harmless fun -- or something darker. Perhaps we shall tell stories of jokes gone wrong, of lies told and illusions spun, of riddles upon which rests the difference between life and death.
We hope you enjoy these tales -- and that you come away wiser for having heard them (unlike, to be sure, many of the poor souls within the tales themselves).
Be watchful. Trust no one (except for us, of course). Listen.
For we have another month of stories to tell.
