New short story

This time, I’ve got a horror tale for you, called It’s Not Murder If They’re Not Human.  You can read it here.

This is one of those stories that came about through writing whatever was in my mind, without any clear idea where it was going. I was tired at the time, and I had the image of someone staggering into a room, unsure of what was happening, but bleeding. Or they had blood on them. Only as I wrote did I start to figure out what was in the room they’d left.

It needed editing of course, and as the story became clearer I rewrote a lot of it. I think only a few lines of the original writing remain. But that’s okay‌—‌sometimes the story only emerges when all the wrong words are out of the way.

Anyway, I hope you like It’s Not Murder If They’re Not Human. And as always, I’d love to know what you think of it.
