Very nice stuff. Nic is correct on you having the talens of Rod Serling and Edgar Allan Poe. I would even say H.P. Lovecraft as well. Loved the dark mood and references to poe. You are a true genius sir.
Charles D. O'Connor ps. Check out my new sci-fi/horror entitled "The Curiosity Shop" thanks. "In everything I am an outsider"-H.P. Lovecraft.
Ron is a horror genuis who's talents I best compare to the writer Rod Serling and Edgar Allan Poe. He knows how to scare when it comes to horror and this story is one of those examples of his approach of being able to scare. Check out the rest of his horror work, it is well worth it.
