More about Darkest Depths:
“Up ahead is an escalator that’ll take us down to the cerebellum,” he said. “That’s where the wombat leaves us.”
“Why?” I asked.
In 2014, Vision Writers published an inaugural collection of speculative fiction stories, “18”. In 2016, we’re at it again, and this time, we’re digging deep and going dark.
If you’re brave enough to gaze into the abyss (beware: it’s watching you), you’ll find a woman caring for a monster, a father’s suffocating guilt, a jumping castle, a tale of the Horseman, a military science experiment gone wrong (don’t they all?), a lake monster, some mutants in a hole, and of course, a bizarre trip through the mind, with a doppelganger and a booze-soaked wombat in a 1969 Kombi.
So be sure to read this under the covers with the torch on and the windows locked. There’s dark things out there. And there’s even darker things in here.
