Ginger Nuts of Horror
On the frozen side of Mount Barmatia, something is stalking the dreams of Dr. Mackenzie Skillman and a team of scientists, as they try to dissect and analyze a newly discovered breed of humanoid. Can they survive long enough to find its origins, or will a strange psychic siege lead them all to their deaths?
Frozen is Rachelle Bronson's debut solo publication, and for a short story it sure packs a lot into its pages. This chilling claustrophobic tale has echoes of The Thing, and Horror Express, which is not a bad thing for a horror story to echo as these are two of my favourite horror films.
Rachelle, does a fantastic job of keeping the narrative moving along in a taught and gripping manor, while still maintain a brilliant sense of isolation and paranoia. And while the final twist of the story may be obvious to some of you, that by the time you have finished this excellent story you can forgive her for it.
If you are looking for a way to cool down during these hot summer nights, then this is an ideal way to send a shiver down your spine.
