    Mike – the matter of fact statements in your micro-story a truly creepy quality! Between this and your wonderful “They’re Coming” Trifecta story, it’s obvious that you are discovering your skill with writing about the undercurrent in the human psyche. Carry on!!

I look forward to reading your comments
