August 28, 2017, Eldritch, “The Glanconer”,, by LJ McLeod


It was too wild, all jagged rocks and sun-bleached driftwood. But it suited me, this beach and this night, a night one could believe in monsters….

Just as the last of the sun disappeared I saw him. He emerged from the grey waves dripping wet and perfect. His hair was black as sin and his pale skin shone like the moon.

The bus wheezes to a stop, the door squeaks open, and Mr. Pony trots on.
