“Beneath Your Skin”

New short story, on the Literally Stories website:

I couldn’t believe I’d heard you say it, even. For one thing, this was Chalfont St Giles. Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, yet within convenient commuting distance of London… it wasn’t Arizona, somewhere people lived in trailer parks in the middle of nowhere, and where unbelievable things like that could maybe happen.”

Unbelievable things are not always what they seem.

At night, when …

At night, when the objective world has slunk back into its cavern and left dreamers to their own, there come inspirations and capabilities impossible at any less magical and quiet hour. No-one knows whether he is a writer unless he has tried writing at night.
