Are you looking for a good scary — but not too scary — short story to read? Here’s a new one by Neil Gaiman titled “Click-clack the Rattlebag.” It’s a good example of pacing, description, imagery, irony …. all the things we strive to achieve when we write or tell a story. It’s also a story that would work either written like it is here or as a performance piece for something like Write of Way.
If you’re not familiar with Neil Gaiman, consider this a warning: His stories are addictive. Enter at your own risk.
