Hungerpillar

Recently I conducted a poll, asking readers what sort of Patreon story they’d like to read. Sword and sorcery won by a fair margin, and I intend to start work on that story in the next few weeks, but I thought I’d give patrons a horror story involving a coffin, a pond and a county work crew to tide them over.

“Hungerpillar” is a bit of an experiment for me, in terms of plot and pacing. I wanted to try my hand at a proper weird tale, something I haven’t written in a while. Much like “The Bayonet”, it’s light on plot and explanations and heavy (I hope) on atmosphere and tension. I enjoyed writing it, and hopefully, you’ll enjoy reading it!

If you do enjoy it, be sure to check out the other stories on my Patreon page – including a number which are free to read – and perhaps leave a comment, hit the ‘Like’ button, or even consider becoming a patron.
