An Urban Myth Up At Erin Cole’s 13 Days…

My story, An Urban Myth, is now up at Erins Cole’s blog, as part of her 13 Days Of Horror.

I was so chuffed to have made her Halloween special this year and offer sincere thanks both for accepting my story and for the great job she has done with the whole extravaganza. 

My story is loosely based on a Scottish urban legend.  Whether it is fact or fiction is still unknown but go and read the story and then make up your own mind……

Please let me know what you think either here or on Erin’s blog…..or both, if you can be bothered.

  1. David, the coincidence is astounding. Just yesterday i was hearing a night radio program about Sawney bean and his family! My opinion? Scary, veery very scary.
