About Strange Skies
“Something’s wrong. These aren’t clouds.”
July 17, 1987.
A typical summer day in Bisbee, Arizona, is rolling along. The weather is beautiful, providing a picturesque backdrop for hikers, tourists, and everyone else lucky enough to be around.
As dusk falls and people settle into their evening routines, a large thunderstorm rolls in without warning. Unfortunately for the town’s residents, it’s bringing much more than just rain and lightning.
At the local radio station, calls pour in from frantic listeners. They report bizarre and macabre events unfolding throughout town. When the power at the station goes out, the host finds out just how bad the situation is.
Is this strange storm causing mass hysteria, or is there something in the clouds? Beyond that, will anyone be left alive once the storm breaks?
Settle in with Strange Skies and find out… just make sure you leave the lights on.
Thoughts on Strange Skies
I’m not exactly sure what I was expecting when I started reading Strange Skies, but a horror story was definitely not it! But that is what I got, a horror story.
I’m not generally a big fan of horror stories, but Strange Skies captivated my attention and kept me reading through the entire thing.
Strange Skies is a short story, at just 44 pages. But those pages are packed with vivid descriptions that I could easily see happening, and true horror in every page. The best thing about a short story is that every word counts, and there can’t be any fluff to it.
Lately I have found myself reading a new short story every morning with my coffee as I wake up, and today I am very glad that I picked Strange Skies. Being a prepper, I am always thinking ahead to things that can happen, and wanting to have a plan for dealing with it.
This is the kind of story that really made me start thinking about that, and if I am prepared for even the unknown or things not expected. Because what happens when the phone lines to emergency services are down or filled? How do you handle that?
Final Thoughts on Strange Skies
I highly recommend this if you are looking for a short horror story to keep your attention and get you thinking! It is definitely worth a read, and I am so glad that was my morning read for today.
