This week brought us the story "Lore" by author Helen McClory, who somehow has the touch for melding together lulling sentences that are wrapped in uncanny and spooky events. You don't want to blink, as you will certainly miss what lies within the fog.

Helen's story is held together by an other-worldly quality, but is rooted very much in reality. Perhaps, this is what makes "Lore" so strange and frightening. 

A disembodied voice, an unidentified voice, haunts the men who have just returned from a hunt. 

Which beasts have done this? Where will the moon go now the hare is dead?
Tell me.
Tell me.

With each new whisper, the creeping horror overwhelms.
