  1. Another great post. I wrote a horror story that was published last month that could have a person develop ombrophobia. I took something that was normally pleasant, the scent of rain, and had it signify that the monster in the story was close by.

      1. It’s in the Dec. 2017 issue of Disturbed Digest. It’s called Alger’s Dimension. (It’s the one where my name is on the cover). I’ll have to put the story on my website one day so people who visit can read it, but there’s a period after they print it where I can’t do anything with it .
