Seven Year Itch
What happens when you only turn into a monster once every seven years? How do you still gain control?
This story was originally printed in the anthology, “Bewere the Night.”
It’s also available in all the usual outlets. Because it’s such a short story (only 2000 words!) I did it as an “Ace Double” — the story is marketed under Seven Year Itch, with a “Bonus Story” of Magpie. Then I did the same with Magpie — reissued it as a double.
I’ve been doing a bunch of the doubles for the short fiction. It’s all an experiment, as far as I’m concerned.
Tonight, more writing!
