Helplessly Above It All, by Jon Olson, is this week's Scary Saturday Tale! The darkest side of this story by Jon is the reality that this could actually happen. Scary stuff in an unstable world. Jon has given all of us a fantastic tale within the space of a few words. This is a hard-thinking, shot-to-the gut story. A wake up call if you might. Go to the link above and read it in its entirety. I have only included a few words below.
While you're at the Pen Of The Damned website, read more of Jon's great stories, all for the price of free, and all of them great.
