A Small Start to the Day's Free Fiction
• At Nightmare: "Nightcrawlers" by Robert McCammon. Horror.
"'Hard rain coming down,' Cheryl said, and I nodded in agreement. Through the diner’s plate-glass windows, a dense curtain of rain flapped across the Gulf gas pumps and continued across the parking lot. It hit Big Bob’s with a force that made the glass rattle like uneasy bones."
• At Tor.com: "Swift, Brutal Retaliation" by Meghan McCarron.
"a ghost story that cautions one against trying to win a ghostly prank war against one’s dead big brother. You can’t win that sort of war, only survive it."
