Published: October 28, 2012.
A freak industrial accident leaves a man trapped in a hole in the ground. Alone and injured, he is pushed to the brink of insanity by the broken steel beam that hovers above him, threatening at any moment to fall and end his life.
This short story is inspired by Poe’s “The Pit and the Pendulum” and is approximately 3300 words.
