Day One Hundred Ninety-Six: "The Boy with No Face" by Michael Depp


If it's too good to be true, it probably is. That saying is perfect for this story in which family after family moves into this cheap house on an island which is apparently haunted by the image of a boy with no face.

There is an element of supernatural about this story that I actually enjoyed. While perhaps a tad gory, this story felt more like Poe than it did like a true horror story. Overall, I thought it was well written and worth my time. I actually wanted to read more but this was a short short and so it ended too soon for me. That is a good sign about the writing.

A link to the story online is here:
