Find out in the visceral, no holds barred, not safe for work tragedy Oedipus Wrecks.In Pontius Pilate Comes for Christmas un-wrap clues alongside an introverted teen detective as she attempts to solve the mystery of her brother’s annual holiday visit.And finally, in the novella-length coming-of-age Southern epic Box of Rocks, you’ll meet Earl Ray, an endearing, comic book loving good ol’ boy hell-bent on saving souls… one knockout at a time.Pain by Numbers is the first collection of short fiction by Cody Pierce.
