Not so long ago there was an anthology dedicated to retelling the story of Little Red Riding Hood. I wrote and submitted a piece for it called Axe.
Axe is, without question, the most disturbing story I have ever written. I’d just finished reading a bunch of articles about pushing yourself and testing your limits when I wrote it, and I think it shows. Axe tells the story of Little Red Riding Hood from the perspective of the woodsman’s axe. It wasn’t accepted for the anthology I originally wrote it for, but it did find a home in the DemonMInds Halloween issue. That issue is available at Amazon now and DemonMinds have put up a little teaser too. So if you click here you will be able to read the beginning of Axe for free.
Remember though, it’s not for the faint of heart…really. It’s really, really not.
