Well done. Quite properly creepy.

The Twisted Genius

Terrific story, Tyler. You are able to express your vivid imagination clearly and interestingly. Either that or you've been experiencing some kind of shamanic ecstasy out in the southwestern deserts. No matter how you got to it, you created a very rich world.


Thank you Basilisk. Coming from you, with your excellent prose that I've read on here, that means a lot.


Thank you. I am glad you enjoyed it.



I wrote my first Grey story when I was 16, but it is only now after life experience I can get a grip on the world he inhabits.

A friend read this and said that if someone had told her a story blended Native American religion, Catholic mysticism, Voodoo, and the Song of Rolande she would have pronounced it an unreadable car crash of a tale. Then she read this.

I am glad you have found the blending to your taste.

Mr. Stark

Just ran across this, I've watched for some years as the Colonel has labored with the subtly and patience of an master craftsman to shape the literary mind of our friend Tyler.

On the old masthead of Puck Magazine read a line from A Midnight Summer's Dream with the timeless exclamation "Lord, what fools these mortals be!"

Or perhaps the more contemporary and apropos dictum of the late, great Ariel "Arik" Sharon applies that "the things you see from here, you don't see from there."

A charming seven year old girl, Ms. Klapper, was recently spotted in full deer hunting regalia operating to the motto "the family that preys together, stays together."

One can't help but be forgiven for musing that the Klappers indeed may have purloined their motto from that of the Donner Party's last supper.
