This is actually old content, a short story I burped out one cold dark afternoon and self-published in a notebook-collection called World’s Apart (by which I mean, I had the damn things printed at Kinko’s. This was before I had ever heard of Createspace).
Since I started a new collection on Medium, I was scouring my hard drive for stuff to put in it. I read this one, and decided that it was really pretty good. I mean, dark and creepy, sure, but when your collection’s called The Edge of the Void, that’s about right.
