The Vampire of Plum Run by James Glass



Told as a narrative but cleverly done as a tour guide on a battlefield, giving a real sense of ambiance to the whole tale; you can almost feel the heat shimmering off the grass and feel the cool stone walls of the castle.

For such a short story Mr Glass has done a lot of research, or has a lot of personal knowledge, regarding the area/site of the story, this lends a great authenticity.

This is only a 20 min' read but it leaves you with a real sense of curiosity and a I couldn't help but smile at the skill that makes me still think about those characters hours later.

There is nothing overly gross, vampiric or gore laden about this tale but it still left me with a spine tingle.
