A series of creepy vignettes with an imaginative setting, Planks by SC Harrison (@SCHAuthor) is a short story that stuck with me long after putting my Kindle down. I read each “chapter” twice before moving on to the next; the second time through to savor the little details.
The setting for most of the action is The Planks, an isolated mountain town built atop a boarded-over lake, a once pristine body of water that has “turned.” The town serves as the connection between the vignettes, each of which peels back a few layers of the bigger picture. I’m not sure I can say more without spoiling the enjoyment of future readers.
I greatly enjoyed Planks and recommend it as a quick, engrossing read. As an author myself, I must admit to being terribly jealous of Ms. Harrison’s imagination and her ability to craft with relatively few words such an atmospheric and spooky setting and series of events.
