Don’t Turn on the Light: A Short Story by Max China
Don’t Turn on the Light: A Short Story by Max China is pretty self-explanatory. A short horror story.
When Frank and Shelley find the house of their dreams, they can’t believe they paid so little. The only thing Shelley wants to change is to knock down an unsightly old radio antennae in the back yard. Frank doesn’t want to tell her that keeping it there is part of the deal. He is more concerned with getting into the locked basement to make sure the electrical panel is up to par. But when he does, he finds more than he was looking for.
For a short horror story, it has everything you need. A hero ready to protect his family, and a spooky basement. It is a good short read, and apparently, if you want more, the author fleshed it out into a full length book. I’m good for now, but will be looking for more from this author in the future.
