After making my romantic fantasy short story Papercut available FREE on this blog last week, I decided to bring a little further cheer into these strange and uncertain times by making another of my short stories FREE.
Well, cheer is perhaps the wrong word. Once in a Lifetime, previously published as part of Dragon Soul Press’s All Dark Places horror anthology, is a bone-chilling tale of existential dread and sanity questioning psychological terror. Some will probably want to avoid it for that reason, but those who enjoy having their heads messed with in agreeable ways I hope will find much to relish.
Once in a Lifetime involves a man who wakes up in a strange London flat in bed with a woman he doesn’t know, who insists he is someone else in an entirely different life. More disturbingly, memories of his former life – including his wife and children – start to fade from his mind.
The above images give a little tease of what to expect. The right image shows the wonderfully sinister, mystical, and ancient Wistman’s Wood on Dartmoor, which is near where I live, and features in a number of my novels as well.
