Happy Monday, everyone!
I know it is a rather happy Monday for me because I received a glowing review of the dark tale I wrote about an obscure cryptid, which was published in B is for Beasts, part of an alphabetical horror series being produced by Red Cape Publishing.
Check it out! ♡♡♡
P.L. McMillan offers up the anthology’s best and most terrifying work with “Mrs. Rumtifusel’s Fur Coat”. In this story, two teenagers wander into a mysterious museum in search of something unique to wear to the Salem Halloween Street Fair. The museum is brimming with grim curios, and after some resistance, the teens procure a striking fur coat from the enigmatic museum proprietor. The proprietor’s only stipulation – beyond a modest fee – is that the coat be returned to the museum before sundown. Needless to say, things escalate from there, and the teenagers soon realize that the coat was confined to the museum for a very specific reason. This story is dripping with atmosphere. Even in the opening – seemingly innocent – moments of this piece, McMillan introduces a host of disquieting story elements that are sure to unnerve even the most resolute readers. The anxiety builds and builds until it implodes into a beautifully dark and speculative ending. I cannot endorse this story highly enough. – Eugene, Goodreads
