mysterious tense fast-paced


The prose in this short story could use a little polishing, I think, and the cover is really not great, but these issues aside this is competent, if not outstanding. I have difficulty writing very short pieces myself, so all credit to Farthing that she's managed to produce a complete story in a handful of pages, because that's much harder than it looks. I also appreciated that there was the odd quirky detail - the supernatural obsession with beets, for example - which brought touches of originality into a fairly standard horror story.
