This is a very short piece that I started and figured was going to be a horror story after the first two pages.

I am thinking: guy alone, no phone, no where to hide and he is being spooked by aliens or an axe murderer or something outside his window.

The few short locations built suspense and pulled me in a direction I was certain was going to lend to a predictible ending. Not so. It ended totally different than I expected with the "creatures." Very nice twist.

Recommend getting this one free if you can (I always say...shorts are just not a good investment money wise) and save the dollar to invest in a longer work by this author. He can spin a tale.

Obsidian by J. Alexander Greenwood is the perfect one-sitting read for a dark evening in front of a flickering fire. All you can hear is the crackle of the flames and the ticks of your own house. And all you can think is, was that merely a tree branch waving at me through the black window? It's a short but effectively creepy literary suspense that brings to mind the best episodes of the original Twilight Zone series -- those unsettling tales of man versus the unknown. The characters here are like Rod Serling's: true to life as they deal with the darkness in the world and in themselves. The setting drips with mood and the payoff in the end is highly satisfying. Get it.

This story was written with a clarity and tightness not often found in short work on Amazon. The sensitive yet tense writing draws you into the life of the main character and his two sons.

The best short story I've read in a long time.

I bough this because I went to high school with the author. But I have to say it was a good read. I look forward to seeing what else this author put out there.
