Strangers

Rated 4.20/5 based on 5 reviews

About BP Gregory

Monsters, machines and roaming cities, insanity, betrayal and lust! 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’s been a student of archaeology and a dilettante of psychology, biology and prepping culture. However, it was her love of people that drew her to science fiction, horror, and urban fantasy: all engines for frogmarching hapless characters through hell. A process of peeling back layers to discover what, if anything, lurks within. Do we each treasure some inviolate core of self, kept safe from our actions and choices? Would it matter if nobody saw it?

BP Gregory is the author of four novels including the newly released outback horror The Town, about a mysterious burnt-out town and the people who vanish seeking it. A stroll down life’s eerie back alleys with a few collections of short stories, and a horror novelette which was a messy love letter to her childhood city round out the picture. 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.
