The Fishers

1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star
This short story is the prologue to my latest novel, "The Dark Trek Home", which is going to be available for Christmas.

A father and son out fishing.

Quality time from the first cast, the morning is perfect...for awhile. Chaos ripples across the pond and the two find themselves fleeing for their lives.

Nothing makes sense.

About Erik Gustafson

I am the director of Fantasy at Visionary Press Collaborative.

I spent 20 years serving in the United States Air Force, and have had the fortune to live all over the world, including Iceland, Germany, and in a tent for a year in Saudi Arabia.

Always an artist at heart, I produced many paintings during my adventures. After my service, I settled down with my family (wife, two great daughters, 2 cats and a little white fluff dog) in small town Iowa, where I love to volunteer at the antique carousel. Now, I help people with intellectual disabilities to reach their potential and teach psychology classes at a local college.

I switched from a paint brush to a pen and am now a horror writer, by night.

I have had short stories published by The Horror Zine, Alliteration Ink, Death Throes Webzine, Crypto and Co., and several horror anthologies.

We've all had those times when we expect things to go a certain way and they take a 180 degree turn. Erik Gustafson does it again with another creepy story that turns a father-son fishing trip into an edge of your seat nail biter!

The Fishers hooks you from the very beginning. It tugs on your fears of the dsrk deep. This is the origin of The Creatue From the Black Lagoon. I highly recommend it.

If you don't want your view of lazy fishing day be tainted, don't read this book.
Once you lay your eyes on page one, you wouldn't be able to stop until the last word.
So, grit your teeth and be ready to be scared...
Please tell me Erik, that surely there is a continuation for this gem??
