The Fishers

Length: 15 pages11 minutes


This short story is the prologue to my novel "The Dark Trek Home".

A father and son out fishing.

Quality time from the first cast, the morning is perfect...for awhile. Chaos ripples across the pond and the two find themselves fleeing for their lives.

Nothing makes sense.

Bonus content: chapter one of my coming of age horror novel "Fall Leaves and the Black Dragon"
