Whatever Possessed You?

Whatever Possessed You? - Evans Light This story was the opening volley of my ongoing writing adventure.

Initially published as "The Demon Writer", the original version had a prologue / epilogue section that served to add a double-twist, a trick of sorts on the reader, which was removed from "Whatever Possessed You" to create a more straightfoward tale.

In writing this, my goal was to employ a style that would stand nicely alongside Joe Hill's "20th Century Ghosts", one of my favorite short story collections. (Think 'Abraham's Sons' or 'Best New Horror')

While my writing chops are still obviously in development, I remain proud that this story will always be my first.

I'd love to see this filmed as a "Masters of Horror" or "Tales from the Crypt"-type televison episode someday!

Hope you enjoy it!
