I'm pleased and honored to announce that Hypnos Magazine is including my horror short story "Elsie's Whiskers" in their April edition.
Elsie is a part-human huntress prowling the spaces far below the streets of New York City who encounters something quite unexpected one night. Here's the opening:
Elsie awoke when the moon was dark, as always. The crawlspace where she slept, near the top of a Manhattan skyscraper, was silent and shadowy. She stretched, detecting a slight odor. Droppings from a mouse that had passed through during her slumber. Judging from the faint scent, the visit was two weeks past.
She thought of the mouse's whiskers, twitching and seeking in the darkness, and allowed her own senses to reach out. The building was almost empty after hours, and she only detected the energy of security guards and cleaning crews. The skyscraper's steel and concrete were dead materials, and didn't conduct the forces well. That was why she'd picked it, and why her hiding place was so high up. Disconnecting was the only way she could sleep between hunts.
Her stomach trembled at the thought of food, and she slid toward the hatch.
I hope you like it. You can order a copy here:
