It's Thursday! Free short story time! Today I give you one of my personal favorites, starring one of my favorite characters I've created, Nick Kubrick. Nick is a horror DJ who investigates and debunks supernatural myths in his spare time in the foggy city of Bitternest, Louisiana. He would go on to star in his own novel, Nocturnal Offerings, a few years later. Originally published in 2008 in the "9 of Swords" e-zine and reprinted in my first collection, The Bitternest Chronicles, in 2010, here is "The Chilling Hour." Enjoy and I'll see you back here next Thursday.
