Today was supposed to be “It’s A Good Life”, but, because I read three stories in one day, I was tired and it just felt too long. So I have rearranged the schedule, again.
I really love this one. It was introduced to me by a fellow horror enthusiast when I asked for help filling out the last of my list, and as soon as I read the final line I knew I had to include it. I love the kind of short story that is only vaguely menacing throughout, the kind where you think, yeah, okay, this isn’t so bad, and then the last line just hits you. Further evidence of this will be coming tomorrow, but trust me, don’t miss this one. It is really good. My reading, as usual, not so much, but what can you do?
