Nights of Horseplay

When the sun goes down, the statues come to life . . .

I've lived since 1988 in Aiken, South Carolina, long renowned as a center of equine culture. In 2012, a group of us who call ourselves The Aiken Scribblers decided to prepare an anthology of stories and poems on the premise that the "Horseplay" statues located around the town come to life and get into a variety of escapades. Some are humorous, some ironic, some explore the darker facets of human behavior. There's a story about the creation of the anthology at the Aiken Standard.
