Wet Red Grin

Gemma Files, "Wet Red Grin" in Screams From the Dark, ed. Ellen Datlow (Tor Publishing Group: 2022).

This pandemic story gives us a different model for interpreting the spread of infection. A nice wet, bloody red one that smells like vinegar!

It is odd to think about the bloody red skeleton that lives inside each of us and horrifying to think that someday it will get out. Luckily, most of us won't die from it trying to get out; we'll die from something else before our skeleton does make its external debut appearance.
