Brandon's short story, MONSTER published

My short story, "Monster" is out at Digital Dragon Magazine and it's free to read. It's a blend of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror, and it's a modern day parable of sorts...

Check it out if you like HERE.

congrats, can't read the story as I am at work, but will get to it.

That was excellent. Reminded me of the Screwtape Letters, thick with metaphor and meaning. The descriptions were vivid, the plot rushed and tense, and I read in anticipation. Great job, Brandon.

Great story, well-written imagery. I liked the description of the crystal orbs, the ability of the prison-keeper to mask his true nature, and the last scene was perfect. You showed us the fight between light and dark, between the prison keeper and the death slayer.
Congrats!

Hi Budd, haha, I understand!

Hello Brandon.
Interesting site you have here. I don't have too much time for spare reading outside of my normal load, but I am going to pick up your novel for a little pleasure reading; it may take awhile to finish reading it (time constraints) but I'll get back to you for certain. God bless your writings, my friend. Ian.

Hi Ian,
I'm honored to have you read my novel. And yes, get back to me on what you think!

Hope the novel is going well.

Hi Sheila,
It is, just very slowly...
