Synopsis for "Impeding Doom"Edit

An artist draws a frightened face with a circle around it. Thinking this odd, he goes for a walk and comes upon a grave-stone cutter who looks like the picture he drew carving a tombstone with his name on it. The stone-cutter laughs it off as coincidence but wants to show his wife the picture. It turns out the artist and the stone-cutter's wife were once romantically involved and she wants to be so again. The stone-cutter catches them in a passionate embrace and caves in the artist's head with a mallet. The end of the story shows the reader looking at the stone-cutter's frightened face through the open circle of rope at the end of the hangman's noose.
