The deserted highway cut through the sagebrush past the only gas station in a hundred miles.
Wayward passersby with car trouble who stopped for fuel, a jump-start, or a tow. Unlucky souls with dead vehicles and no cell phone reception who thought they could shave extra time off their trips by taking this shortcut.
A place of missing persons who vanished without a trace.
Until the day it came for them.
“Evil | Live” is one of 15 stories in Real Dreams, a collection of short stories written over three decades with themes ranging from adventure, fantasy, mystery, spirituality, mythology, to love and war.
