I love all of Rami Ungar’s stories. Throw in a creature feature? Sold!

As with all short novellas any details are spoilers so I’ll be brief. Peyton lives in a completely fortified home, afraid of the outside and of people in general. He’s locked himself away. A hurricane is moving in to knock out his or what he thinks is his actual reality.

The storm drags up something and it’s hurled into his sanctuary. It doesn’t want to be there and neither does Peyton so it’s going to have to be man vs the w

No man is an island

An exciting, tense, emotional story that had me reading with bated breath and left me with tears in my eyes.
Peyton hasn’t left his house in years. Now a hurricane is besieging his property, but is the ferocity of nature enough to drive him from his home?
I LOVED his house! I can see why he didn’t want to leave. I wouldn’t mind living there myself!
Great short story from the master of fear.

An intriguing short story of a man who has problems, sadly those problems are about to get worse. The author does a great job making this short story feel longer with complete content in a short space.

Great short story. I was a bit confused with the direction the story was going but it made sense in the end and I really liked it.
