Have you kept All Hallow’s Read in mind? You know, the day when you give someone a scary book – it’s today and I have not forgotten. And I thought, why give one or few people a book when you can give many people a story? And why print in today’s environment-conscious world where you’ve got the Internet to upload?
So here’s a scary not-exactly-book-much-rather-a-short-story I wrote for all of you. This was created for a competition, originally in Hungarian, where the task was to capture an evil character’s thoughts and introduce one of his or her crimes through their mind – showing motives and reasons. The story won the round of the contest and I really hope the English translation lives up to the original. If you spot any mistakes – since English is not my mother tongue – I will be glad to hear and correct! Executioner has been available in Hungarian for a while, so as always, if you speak Hungarian or like challenges, don’t miss that one either!
