From the author: Here's a little dark fantasy flash.

Twenty-some years ago, an acquaintance who was publishing a small local magazine (circulation 300, tops) asked me to write him 500 words he could use.  I whipped out this little peculiarity.

I think it's not bad.  Although it's only five per cent of a novel, it has a beginning, middle, and end.
