I took McCombs' challenge. I wasn't scared, not one bit. That said, I *did* enjoy the piece very much and think McCombs has as warped an imagination as I have - which may be part of the reason I wasn't scared.
Overall, very well-written without being preachy or pedantic- just a tiny, well-crafted tale of the macabre. Good job.
