My Short Story: Cave of the Shenandoah

When Fight On! announced its "Weird Enclaves and Black Pits" fiction anthology, I thought I'd try my hand at a short story--a sort of turn-of-the-century-style creepy/weird tale. That's a hard tone to get it in writing, and by all accounts, I apparently whiffed on it pretty good. In other words, you won't be seeing it in the Weird Enclaves and Black Pits anthology. You know what, though? To hell with it--I had fun writing it.

But, for those 3 of you who can't have enough amateur Civil War-based weird fantasy/horror fiction, I present to you "Cave of the Shenandoah", for your free downloading pleasure. Enjoy!

Hey, just read your short story. Loved it! Very much a Lovecraft-ian feel with that gradual slide from the real world into one that is ancient and best left unseen.

Hey, thanks very much. I'm very happy you enjoyed it!

Technically, it's too short, too slight and doesn't quite hit the mark.

From the artistic side, you've got talent there. You just need a good editor/coach for the technical side.
