STORY

“The Blackest Curse”
Author: Jesse J. Saxon

The Wicked Library brings you a modern version of a traditional folk tale. A play on the bear skin tale, this creative story blends elements from different traditions and the artist’s imagination seamlessly. This story reminds us to be careful what we agree too. Things that seem too good to be true often are.

About the Author:


Jesse J. Saxon was born in the shadow of Pittsburgh. Jesse has been a fan of horror and fiction since early childhood. He initially got started writing in junior high and kept it as a hobby until the mid 2000s when he began to pursue it as an active interest and profession. In addition to writing fiction, Jesse also covers the nonfiction world by way of op-ed pieced and journalism for the world of Mixed Martial Arts. In his spare time, Jesse enjoys training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, good coffee, reading all sorts of things, and cigars with his cat.
