I really like this story. It reminded me of Joseph Conrad and some of those 19th and early 20th Century authors where the narrator tells his adventures to an audience — in this case his club buddies. The tale has a spooky Edgar Alan Poe feel about it with an ending I didn't see coming, although it was the sort of yarn that could have gone in any number of directions.

Short, sharp and sweet! A riveting short story with a gnarly-ole' twist to it... a can o' worms (or perhaps, something larger). Can someone live for hundreds of years and never age? Can a curse turn into a sort of blessing, or is a curses blessing, a curse in itself? Tricky questions and unexpected answers lie within these pages. If you like a twist that takes some nutting out and a little magic, then this tale could be for you. Warning... don't go into the silo!
It's a quick read that will either get you running for cover, or have you entranced until the brutal end.
