Now I Lay Me

My short story, Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, appeared in the August 5 The Chamber online magazine. https://thechambermagazine.com/short-stories/ It is the ninth story down from the top. The story first appeared in Terror House back in January. This is an expanded version. I received critiques on the former version that I didn’t identify the murderer. That wasn’t the point of the story. The point was the relationship between the boy and his father and what it means to be a man. So I added an unmasking for those who need closure.

One thought on “Now I Lay Me

  1. Well done Curtiss. more polished than the last version I saw. the story does raise some interesting philosophical questions about definitions of manhood.
