I mostly build houses and shops to earn a living but I'm also a writer, poet, artist, photographer, role playing game designer and independent e-book publisher. I’ve written dozens of stories, including fantasy, horror, sword & sorcery, mystery, humor, erotica, and science fiction, frequently combining genres. Forty have been published in small press magazines and e-zines, from the 200-word "The Hole" in Ascent Aspirations, to the 10,000-word novelette "Levels" in Buzzy Mag, published in May, 2012. Some of them are available now as ebooks at Smashwords.

Another solid well-written story by Hunik, about a cat-hating guy who gets his just desserts. The author is obviously a cat lover [from his profile], and that would make this a bit of a wrenching story to write. I think, for a little flash fiction, it succeeds really well, and the ending was a moderate surprise to me. Good stuff.
Rik Hunik's work here looks very diverse and interesting, and I will be reading more of his writing soon.

I am quite impressed with this little tale. The man likes killing cats, the man drops acid, the man starts seeing the cat he just tried to kill all around that evenings party. Witty and poignant although I would be lying if I said I didn't see the end coming early on. Still, the end was well set up so I can't complain. My one critique would be with the first paragraph. The rest of this story is so well written I think I know what the author was trying to do there. He has a rather jumbled run on sentence describing the chaotic feel of this drug fueled bash. For me though, it was confusing and caused me to reread it three times before I drunk it all in (no pun intended, okay maybe a little).
