Eldritch Horror of A Rural Kind - New Lovcraftian Tale

One of my students graduated a while back and set to work launching a very nice publication called Aphotic Realm. It's always filled with full color art and stories.

He asked me for a story a while back to fit the theme for an Eldritch issue. Sometimes a request triggers a burst of fresh creative energy. I sat down and wrote a story called "Shotgun Wedding" that I'm very proud of. 

It's a bit of a rural eldritch tale that riffs off a bit of folklore and tips a hat to the Cthulhu Mythos. 

It's Halloween night and a knock at a family's door leads to an invasion by armed men with whole-head animal masks.

Family secrets and much more unfold from there.
