A bit strange, not really sure why it is #1, published two years ago and there is no #2.

I am interested in trying other works by the author.

An interesting story that leaves you wondering what exactly you have just read about. Was it a ghost? Time travel? A mind reader? Or just a straight up ordinary guy who's short visit seemed a bit odd. And what of the man asking the questions? What does he know that we don't.

I liked the fact that these questions were left open for the reader to contemplate, a good short piece of flash fiction.

Review by: Tony Bowman on Nov. 21, 2014 :
Mr. Simon has a gift for descriptive dialog. This short story which consists of an interview with a waiter who has witnessed something paranormal is a good showcase of the author's ability to weave a story from dialog alone. In this, the story is astoundingly good. However, there is no payoff for the reader.

If the author's goal was to show us he is an exceptionally good writer, he has succeeded. Mr. Simon's technique is flawless, but his execution is lacking. A horror short story must be more than a weird vignette or character study. This reads like the intro to something truly amazing, and I'm hoping that is Mr. Simon's ultimate goal.

All that being said, I believe you will enjoy this small sample of work from someone who is capable of much more. Keep up the good work, Mr. Simon.
