Reviews:

[This] is an intelligent horror story that reads like a parable for mental illness and homelessness…This story will leave you with a cloying sense of fragility that is hard to shake. Truly a great short story.

Signal Horizons review (excerpt)

A haunting tale of a woman losing herself, filled with beautiful imagery this is juxtaposed with the terror of what is happening. A real blast back into the book for me.

Amazon reviewer

K.C.’s tale could have been the basis for an episode of Rod Serling’s classic, “Twilight Zone.”

Reader

This story has a real bite to it…As Stephen King said, the artistic value of the work of horror lies in “its ability to form a liaison between our fantasy fears and our real fears,” and by that measure, you have succeeded very well.
