    by Tim Curran Published by Darkfuse on August 19th 2014 Genres: Apocalyptic, Extreme Horror, Horror, Sci-Fi Pages: 95 Format: eARC Buy on Amazon Goodreads The following is based on an eARC made available by DarkFuse Publishing through NetGalley. At about the halfway point of Tim Curran’s soon to be released novella, I found myself wondering what goes on in this author’s head. Specifically: What makes him tick? How does he come by his ideas?
