Dark Cheer: Cryptids Emerging
An anthology from Improbable Press featuring my story “The Enfield Monster”
But Jessica was different too. She was not sharp and acidic like some people, not harsh, and caustic, and afraid. Jessica was open and soft and sweet and lonely. She saw a monster and she wasn’t afraid, even when she heard the monster offer her shelter in a half-frozen swamp, even when she heard the monster promise (and Pearl had never lived this down) not to eat her.
“You can’t eat me,” Jessica had observed. “I’m bigger than you.”
