Strangers

Rated 4.20/5 based on 5 reviews
A paroled monster, a prostitute and a policeman all see a little girl lost, but this isn't the start of a joke. What can such a morsel do, when all that's left to rely on is the kindness of strangers?

This short urban fantasy is part of a suite of short science fiction, fantasy and horror stories by BP Gregory, each its own little maelstrom of human suffering and longing. More

About BP Gregory

Horror! Sci-Fi! All manner of strange happenings! Australian author and avid reader, BP Gregory was always an oddment to justify the most terrible things. With such tales you shouldn’t always feel comfortable or safe.

Coming from a sober, orderly corporate background she has been a student of archaeology, and a dilettante of psychology, biological science, and prepping culture.

It was a love of writing about people whatever their station that drew her strongly to horror, science fiction and urban fantasy; all engines for frogmarching her hapless characters through extreme situations. A process of painfully peeling back the layers to discover what, if anything, lurks inside. Do we each treasure some inviolate core of self, kept safe from our actions and choices? Would it matter if nobody ever saw it?

BP Gregory is the author of three novels including the newly released Something for Everything, bursting with monsters, machines and roaming cities, insanity, betrayal and lust. A novelette, and a stroll down life's eerie back alleys with a few collections of short stories round out the picture. Currently writing Australian-based urban horror novel The Town. She lives in Melbourne with her husband.

Read the story before the reviews.

Read the story, watch it unfold. I give 5 stars for a reason.

Excellent story and characterisation for a short story - all three of the little girl's helpers felt very real. I've read a lot of BP Gregory's stories and this is probably my favourite. Worth a read!

Review by: David H. Keith on Feb. 21, 2013 :
Sadly riveting and all too possible. This may be only 2400 words, but Gregory has written a story that should be read by everyone. It is a well-deserved condemnation of our modern "civilized" world. And it is unutterably sad and not the least bit surprising.

It's an okay five minute read, but I just can't get in to something that is short, even when the subject matter is someone risque and different. Felt like another 2,500 words or so would have made it better. Keep up the good work though, I'll check out your other stuff.
