Welcome to My Monday Minis Reviews.
If you’ve been following my blog, I’m sure you’ll recognize this Author. I’ve read all but a couple of his stories and loved them!
For today I’ll be sharing Trailer
A Short Story by Edward Lorn
Edward Lorn is a master of the short horror story. This one is no exception.
It’s not fit for man nor beast with a nor’easter raging outside, but Kay has no choice. She left her husband lying in a pool of blood, the frying pan she used to kill him sticking out of his face. Bullying her was one thing, but abusing her son, Tony, a boy with Down Syndrome, was not to be tolerated.
Now, on the road in the middle of the night in a blinding snow storm, Kay must find shelter from the storm when the car breaks down.
Her son had spotted a mailbox a ways back so they find it and follow a narrow path through the trees to a decrepit trailer.
But, before they can get to it, something rises from the snow. Something white, with glowing silver eyes and very sharp teeth and claws. Soon. more rise out of the snow and it’s a race to get to the trailer.
But will the trailer be protection from the screeching beasts outside?
Well, you know I can’t answer that question.
I’ll tell you this though. The beasts are determined to get inside and eat them up and the trailer has been long abandoned and falling apart.
The best thing about Edward’s short stories is his characters. He has this ability to flesh them out quickly. You feel you know them. But don’t get too attached to them. He’s not above knocking them off for a good scene.
Must not forget his creatures. They are all uniquely his own creations and bloody nasty too.
The less you know, the better.
Edward Lorn is an American horror author presently residing in the southeast United States. He enjoys storytelling, reading, and writing biographies in the third person. Once upon a time, during a session of show and tell, a seven-year-old Edward Lorn shared with his class that his baby brother had died over the weekend. His classmates, the teacher included, wept while he recounted the painful tragedy of having lost a sibling. Edward went home that day and found an irate mother waiting for him. Edward’s teacher had called to express her condolences. This was unfortunate, as Edward had never had a baby brother. With advice given to her by a frustrated teacher, Edward’s mother made him start writing all of his lies down. The rest, as they say, is history. Edward Lorn and his wife are raising two children, along with a handful of outside cats and a beagle named Dot. He remains a liar to this day. The only difference is, now he’s a useful one.
