The Skyline of a Ship

Rated 3.00/5 based on 1 reviews
'It's a wrecked ship, anchored over there and left alone. I don't know what it's doing there, or how on earth it has outlived storm after storm for years. They say that, sometimes, people go there and never come back. I'd like to reach it, someday, just to see.'

Review by: Morgan Stone on Nov. 22, 2016 :
The Skyline of a Ship, by Anna Stroud, is a wonderfully dark, and truly disturbing, short story. I would love to read more (and hopefully longer) explorations into the human psyche by this author. Although The Skyline of a Ship -- I think she meant "The Silhouette of a Ship" -- is filed under Gay and Lesbian fiction on smashwords.com, it is really a story of a very dark and disturbing need to find a weird sort of immortality. In other words, it is NOT restricted to the LGBT genre, by any means. Unfortunately the translation - which I am assuming was from French to English - doesn't do the story justice. Regardless, read this work, you'll be glad you did, and like me, you'll find yourself thinking about it long after you've read the last, truly unsettling scene.
