PAY THE GHOST by Tim Lebbon

Pay The Ghost
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I grabbed a free copy of this story not long ago and decided to read it tonight.

A year ago, Lee lost his little girl during Hallowe'en. That wasn't the only thing he lost. He also loses his job and his marriage. Not to mention hope. But his wife doesn't, and the next time he sees her, she's got quite the tale to tell...

Yikes. This was super weird. And freaky. Also, very creepy.

The way Lee's grief and guilt invites so much darkness into his life, makes you wonder if anything he goes through after his life falls apart actually happens. Or makes you feel bad about the awful supernatural entity that steals everything from him.

It also proves that sometimes, what you wish for the most doesn't always turn out how you thought it would.

This story is short, but definitely NOT sweet. It's just like a delirious nightmare with a lot of gruesome imagery. I really enjoyed it!
