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

Author and avid reader BP Gregory brings monsters, machines and roaming cities, insanity, betrayal and lust! With such tales you shouldn't always feel comfortable or safe.

Hailing from sober corporate beginnings she's been an archaeology student and a dilettante of biology, psychology, and apocalypse prepping. However, her love of frogmarching hapless characters through hell drew her to science fiction, horror and urban fantasy: all vehicles for peeling screaming 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 five novels including the recently released frozen post-apocalyptic horror Flora & Jim, about a father who'll do anything to keep his daughter alive. A stroll down life's eerie back alleys with a few fistfuls of short stories, and a novelette which was a messy love letter to her adolescence in the city round out the piece.

She lives in Melbourne, Australia with her husband and is currently working on The Newru Trail, a murder-mystery set in a world where houses eat your memories.

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!

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.
