Kelson Hargis is an author, analyst, and professional technical writer for a Fortune 100© insurer. He has a B.S.|B.A. in Organizational Innovation which he’s found to be completely useless.
He’s also an internet entrepreneur and partner at 1106 & Darkhouse Films where he’s still forbidden from touching any equipment. Their 2016 Cincinnati 48 Hour Film Project entry Abaddon was critically acclaimed by close friends, relatives, and anyone remotely familiar with the disturbing nature of Kelson’s horror fiction. He’s occasionally permitted to relieve himself, eat, or sleep when he meets scripting word counts, casting, sourcing, and project management objectives.
Kelson has published horror shorts such as Elijah’s Phone, Festival of Ghosts, and Acta Somnium under his brand HorrorByHargis. He's determined to prove his sanity to family and friends by publishing a compilation of modern realistic shorts called True Stories & Other Fantastic Tales, then despoil that with a supernatural, thriller novella, Karma, Pleasure & Pain both of which are almost done (really).
Please don’t startle Kelson should you encounter him as he is considered "clinically unstable.” He is a contributing author of the horror anthology, Shadows And Teeth, Volume 2.
on March 12, 2017 :
This story pretty much nailed it for me right up until the end. The writer tells a story of his tough dad who was a US Marine and subject to a nuclear detonation experiment in the Nevada desert. The sentiments under the tough exterior really made the dad seem genuine and the kind of guy you would much respect. The feelings the son has for the Dad are all between the lines which is the sign of a mature writer. I think the author was trying to expand the story towards the end when he introduced the grandfather and some letters that were written. The end of the story seems to want to take the tale in a new direction, wants to expand the tale beyond the nuke experiment.
