Will and Pete loved each other in a time when doing so could get you killed. Flash forward seventy-five years and you can still find people who wouldn’t think twice about doing just that to a couple of men in love with each other. What happens every Halloween night at the abandoned and reputedly haunted house at the end of Loon Lane might not change any bigoted opinions, but it will make you think twice about what’s behind the next glory hole.
I won't say too much about Glory Hole to Hell as it is a short story and I don't want to give anything away. However, I do want to mention that it was delightfully creepy, intriguingly romantic, and even a bit weirdly erotic. A delicious blend of paranormal, contemporary, historical, and lustful romance. Personally I think some characters get what is coming to them while others are locked in reliving a particular point of time that I wish they could be free of but it is a choice that was made and lived with, so to speak😉. I loved the choice of paranormal entity the author used, personally I think it is an under used element in print today which only made Glory Hole to Hell stand out even more. This one may be short on quantity but the author jam packed it with quality, a true creepified gem.
CL Mustafic is a born and bred American mid-westerner who mysteriously ended up living in one of those countries nobody can ever find on the map of Europe. Left with too much time on her hands – let’s be honest here it was the lack of television channels in her native language – and too many voices in her head trying to fill the silence, she decided to give her life-long dream of writing a novel a shot. So now between shuttling kids back and forth from various activities, risking her life on the insanely narrow, busy streets of her new home town, she loses herself in her own made up world where love always wins.
