It's the dead of night.

A man wakes up on a speeding train only to find his carriage empty. As his commute home continues, he grows suspicious of the apparent nothingness outside his window.

About Mark D. Evans

MARK D. EVANS was born in 1979, near London in the United Kingdom. After moving around the country, doing the usual kind of things like attending school and university, he ended up in a profession that had nothing to do with writing. This turned out to be a rather large blunder, considering he'd been writing ever since he could pick up a pencil. It transpired that the blunder was probably due to his childhood mystification as to why anyone would willingly put themselves through the torture of writing a whole book. Naturally by adulthood, this was exactly what he wanted to do.

He doesn't write for any one particular genre and his tales can be genre-blending, but he always tries to put something new in his work which often comes in the form of warped ideas or a dark twist. He considers his finest moment the time he completed a screenplay for a two-part episode of a famous science-fiction series. Unfortunately, he took so long writing it that the series finished before he did.

His first publication, Dead End Train, was a short story which made it into the Kindle Top 10 of free ebooks.

Mark currently resides in London. His full-time profession still has nothing to do with writing.

Downloaded this on the back of "We Are God".

Okay, so this is slightly predictable, but it's still really well written and, when I think about it, it's less a horror story than a melancholic love story. When I think about it that way, it's actually really rather creepy. Ironically.

Review by: David Blake on Oct. 16, 2012 :
This story is quite well-written, the premise is good and it builds up nicely... but very early on I started to form an idea as to what the resolution was going to be, and I was saying to myself "Oh no, please don't let it be THAT." But it WAS - in my view possibly the worst device that can be used to resolve a horror story. I even remember when I was aged 11, a fellow pupil used the same type of ending for a story we all had to write and got told off by the
teacher for resorting to such a cop-out climax! So, sorry, but this story needs a far better ending in my opinion.
