It was published in the Jan/Feb issue of 2008.

Big thank you’s to Ann VanderMeer for taking a chance on an unpublished author, and to her husband, author Jeff VanderMeer as well as Ann’s assistant Tessa Kum for mentioning the story on their respective blogs.

By Matthew Pridham

I write horror stories as well as film and book reviews. I've been published in Weird Tales Magazine,,, and My primary interests are modernist fiction, world domination, the horror genre (classic, avant-garde, modern), polyamory, and philosophy of every stripe. Favorite authors include (but are far from limited) to Marcel Proust, Ramsey Campbell, Martin Amis, Thomas Ligotti, Ruth Rendell, Vladimir Nabokov, Jorge Luis Borges, and Clive Barker. I grew up in Bergen, Norway as well as Albuquerque, New Mexico, and I've attended the University of New Mexico and CU Boulder.
