Body in the Woods by Sarah Lotz

One foul night while her husband is away, an old friend turns up on Claire’s doorstep and begs for her help. She knows she should refuse, but she owes him.

This weeks post is written by Sam (@SamaelTB). He has kindly provided his thoughts on Myth Understandings. I just want to take an opportunity to thank him. For me the measure of a short story is really whether it's a story at all. So many feel like prologues to novels or just don't make sense in isolation. Others seem to feel it's okay for to skip out on character development or feel the need to hint at a massively complex world that leaves the reader with more questions than it does answers.
