Roadside Cross

By Sam Weller at 9:31am ET

My new short story, “Roadside Cross,” will be published by’s new digital publishing imprint, Story Front, and will be released on March 12. The story is currently available for pre-order, and I could really use your help. The story is just 99 cents—less than a can of soda from a vending machine—and I want to make an impact. I’d love to see the Amazon sales rank skyrocket. On March 12, can you do me a huge favor and order the story? It will take only a few minutes. The story is available for Kindles and iPads. “Roadside Cross” is steeped in the tradition of Ray Bradbury’s classic collection, The October Country. It’s a modern, Midwest gothic tale of mystery and melancholy that poses the question, Do ghosts mourn the dead? I’m excited about the story and truly appreciate your support!


  1. Damn, Sam. Best story yet. Well done.

  2. Just read “Roadside Cross” and loved it. Very evocative. I always look forward to a new Sam Weller story. Might we see a collection sometime?
