A slight change of pace for me, with a story in the crime magazine, Heater, from FictionMagazine.com.
This one’s called Golem, for reasons you’ll soon work out when you read it.
There’s a little bit of crime and a little bit of horror in this short story. I’m quite happy with the result, though I’ve not as yet tried my hand at that combination since.
The story came out of an online workshop I became involved with a few years back. The story sat on the backburner until I came across it on my laptop. It’s brutal, and it’s harsh, and no one comes out of it smelling of roses, but I love it to bits.
