Ellen Bloom just wants a normal working relationship with her colleagues at her old job. But, at this point, she’d be happy with a pulse.
Originally published in the Corporate Catharsis anthology, “Once Upon a Nightwalker” is a terrific standalone story set in the author’s “The Z-Tech Chronicles” universe (the first two books which, I realize now, I have been remiss in publishing my reviews on — I will get on that right after NaNoWriMo). It’s a terrific blend of the eerie supernatural with the unpleasant reality of an unforgiving corporate culture.
I highly recommend this story. Even better, you can get it right now for free!
