It’s Monday and we know Mondays are busy. Hell, they are even busy here in the Library. So, we won’t keep you long.
Just long enough to read this quick shot 31 Days of Halloween installment from short story writer Derek Muk, whose tales have appeared in dozens of magazines and three chapbooks (Three Parts, The Sacrifice and Other Stories, and Sin After Sin). The Occult Files of Albert Taylor, his first full length collection of short stories, is out now.
