Devil

Glen Hirshbert, "Devil" in Screams From the Dark, ed. Ellen Datlow (Tor Publishing Group: 2022).

Sometimes, we go looking for monsters; we seek adventure and ". . . that delicious before-we-had-brains dread of being stalked." The story is about creating such an adventure, the nature of memory, and storytelling itself. We shade our experiences through the context of our surroundings and create monsters from things that are bigger, hidden, and not fully understood. This feels like memories!
