Scary Good

By ScaryTrue, author of Scary True

Apr 6, 2011: Through the Guts of A Beggar is a real fun read. I was reminded of some of Stephen King’s early stories, and I especially liked the twist on the zombie theme. I think the writing is particularly well-done and the story is frightening, tragic, and gripping. This is a great short story and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a solid horror story.
