Turned into a Five Act. What can I say?   Half the lights were out in the stairway. “The radio thing is down there?” Yuri tried to keep the reluctance out of his voice.

  It was worse than he feared, the Wet Valley. Clouds of bugs, calf-deep mud, and the rotten, low tide stink… Gah! It was so rank it burned the hairs in his nose. Yuri pulled his scarf up so as to not puke breakfast. Visibility was crap in the tall grass and the hiss of … Continue reading “A Prayer to St. Strelok, Part 2”
