Every year I try to release a standalone short story that is more on the weird/bizarre side of horror. Sometimes it turns into a story about a woman out on the open sea trying to find answers to her mysterious past. And other times it turns into a horror scifi piece that definitely leans into the bizarre.
Inspired by the femme fatale stories I’ve loved and the disturbing science fiction stories out there, A Beautiful Specimen follows a woman with a dangerous secret.
A Beautiful Specimen
On one of the upper floors of an apartment complex downtown, Alice keeps a secret. It isn’t hidden in a closet or in a dresser drawer, but in a spacious bathtub. As she comes home from a long day of work and hangs up her keys, she hears it thumping against the porcelain in anticipation of her return.
Alice isn’t at all what she seems. Worse yet, she’s ready to move to the next stage.
