The Blood Knows

Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Alice spent her birthday crying and angry.

About Erik Gustafson

I spent 20 years serving in the United States Air Force, and have had the fortune to live all over the world, including Iceland, Germany, and in a tent for a year in Saudi Arabia.

Always an artist at heart, I produced many paintings during my adventures. After my service, I settled down with my family (wife, two great daughters, 2 cats and a little white fluff dog) in small town Iowa, where I love to volunteer at the antique carousel. Now, I help people with intellectual disabilities to reach their potential and teach psychology classes at a local college.

I switched from a paint brush to a pen and am now a horror writer, by night.

I am working on my forth novel. I have been published in The Horror Zine, Horrified Press, Sirens Call Publications, Pleasant Storm Entertainment, Crypto and Co., Death Throes Webzine, and several other horror anthologies.

Review by: Bruce Blanchard on Oct. 14, 2011 : (no rating)
Alice is running from a bad situation finding the man she loves with her best friend and it hurts like hell. Running so far she has no idea where the hell she is - and has to stop for the night. She finds a vacancy and meets the night clerk, Mitch. He could be a charmer, but those stuffed ravens above him sure are creepy! Their eyes seem to be watching you. The short story deals with vengeance, blood, hungry trees, and retribution on the pecking order. The centerpiece of Blood are the raven from hell. Read it and see if you agree with me that Mitch needs to appear again from the pen of Erik Gustafson.

Well written short story that reminds me of an episode of The Twilight Zone. Creepy! Great short story that especially fits this time of year.
