The wolf had advanced while I was distracted, and now stood within ten feet of me instead of the fifty safe yards at which I’d initially seen it. Its mouth hung open, pink tongue wagging, yo-yo threads of drool dipping, retracting, dipping, and then pattering below as its eyes stayed on mine.
i liked all the bones of this one: horror, revenge, remote location, mysterious animals, family secrets, but there were a few too many holes in its construction to be entirely satisfying—awkward phrasings, clunky scenes, typos, loose ends and unanswered questions.
i’m probably just being critical and grumpy because i am having a BAD DAY and i’ve forgotten how to write reviews, so feel free to ignore me and go enrich your quarantine with this or any of the free tor shorts because now you have plenty of time!
