When Ricky was nine years old he murdered his grandma with a shattered bottle of Jack Daniels. Nobody knows why he did it. Not even Ricky.

Forty-two years later and Ricky still believes he is that little boy. The face of the man in the mirror is a stranger he's never known.

Doctors at Pinehurst Mental Hospital, desperate to help Ricky confront the suppressed memories locked away in his fractured mind, perform a radical new therapy to reveal the secrets buried on that fateful night.

But soon they'll come to realize some memories are best left forgotten.

Sins of the Father is a psychological thriller from Anthony Vicino. A heartbreaking short story examining mental health, regret, and redemption. Fans of Edgar Allan Poe's suspense, or Stephen King's unsettling horror mysteries, will love this captivating short story.

About the Author

Anthony Vicino is just an author living on the mean streets of Oakland where they believe in grafitti (not wallpaper), crossing streets whenever and wherever they please, and fixed-gear bicycles you'd best keep locked up with an Adamantium chain.

Anthony writes the sorts of fast-paced, thrilling adventures that will drag you (kicking and screaming if need be) into the world of tomorrow and leave you clamoring to turn the pages faster! If that sounds like your cup of kombucha, but you're feeling thrifty, then pop on over to his word-fortress at and get yourself the complete starter library (3 books!) for FREE!

When he isn't sitting in front of a computer screen contemplating the thousand different ways his character can escape the asylum with nothing but a fork, a shoelace, some chutzpah, and a lot of snark, Anthony is no doubt out climbing a rock in the Sierra Mountains. If not there, you may find him floundering in the ocean pretending to surf.

Anthony has erected a word-fortress in the cyber-slum over at (and is a regular contributor for the Hugo award winning site, where he writes about anything and everything SFF-related. Stop over and see what he's scribbling on the walls.
