Yardwork

Adult
Rated 4.75/5 based on 4 reviews
Tim's younger brother hates him. Their father abuses him. His mother is indifferent to everyone. When Tim discovers the nameless man passed out in the shed, it's the best thing that's happened to him in his fifteen years of life-- better than the time he caught the neighbour's dog. It's an opportunity he won't forget as long as he lives.
Too bad the same can't be said for the nameless man.

About Bruce Blake

Bruce Blake lives on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. When pressing issues like shovelling snow and building igloos don't take up his spare time, Bruce can be found taking the dog sled to the nearest cafe to work on his short stories and novels.
Actually, Victoria, B.C. is only a couple hours north of Seattle, Wash., where more rain is seen than snow. Bruce is the father of two and trophy husband of burlesque diva Miss Rosie Bitts. He spends too much time work a traditional job and not enough time writing but hopes to change all that soon.

What a good message for abusive fathers the world over. Sort yourself out or risk becoming garbage! Cool story, more please.

A truly vicious and well-executed work that shows how dangerous yard implements can be. Indeed, every shovel and shear should be licensed. I recommend this short to all who enjoy a bit gore and the occasional flinch.

This is a fascinating piece of work. The main character arc is subtle, but effective and the narrative is paced well enough to give the story a nice flow. The background of the main character and the reasoning for his actions are peppered throughout the story which season the story well.

What an awesome story! Ordinarily I would pronounce this kid a twisted little monster, so it was a surprise to find myself cheering him on. It takes a damned good writer to sway a reader down a new thought path. Let's just hope this author doesn't go into politics with his powers of persuasion!
