WAIT FOR NIGHT by Stephen Graham Jones


Wait for NightWait for Night by Stephen Graham Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love the cover illustration for this story as much as the story. It's awesome, but also fits the narrative perfectly.

A laborer called Chessup works with a small crew hired to help clean up a flooded creek outside of Boulder. When their shift is over and his car battery dies, he tries to fix the problem. Instead, he winds up finding something that's been unearthed and learns a lot more about Burned Dan than he bargained for...

This is a fantastic story! I loved every second of it. As soon as Chessup's narration began, I was drawn into this creepy and weird tale and couldn't stop reading. I read it in one sitting and loved how everything turned out. I didn't expect things to go the way they did, but it was exciting to find out.

Awesome, riveting and a unique twist on a familiar trope.

Oh, and this little gem is available for free online: https://www.tor.com/2021/10/11/read-w...

I highly recommend you read it.
