The Darkest Prison

1 star1 star1 star1 star
(12,000 word short story) Bran Carstairs is convicted for a murder he didn’t commit, left free to walk the streets — if he dares. Transformed into the thing used to frighten naughty children, a Null, he will be a man without a face, hiding in the shadows, no longer human. He will be prey, hunted for sport. His only choice is to survive or die. How long will it be before death is the better choice?

About C S McClellan

I'm a blogger, novelist, and short story writer. My first completed novel, Hidden Boundaries, a Novel of Slavery, explores personal conflicts and relationships in the context of unequal power. It's psychologically driven, with an undercurrent of romance that builds subtly and slowly. The two protagonists are a slaveowner and the young man who becomes his slave. Unlike most novels with a male owner and male slave, Hidden Boundaries is not about BDSM or erotica.

My fiction is concerned primarily with issues of personal freedom. My settings are either slave societies or societies in which the question of personal freedom is increasingly tied to extreme political, economic, and social changes.

I also blog about writing and reading, with occasional reviews of self-published books.

Not too sure what to say. That was possibly one of the most devastating stories I've ever read. I kind of want to go curl up and cry now.
