MONDRANECT by Bryn Sparks

Bryn's effective use of the non-conventional 2nd person voice not only displayed a wonderful command of language and storytelling, it also thrust the reader directly in the middle of this sick, disturbing tale. I for one bit my nails down to the skin as I read. This story stuck in my head LONG after I finished it, and I've gone through it three times now. The ambiguity of the narrative lends it a nightmarish feel and, well, that thing in the yard is just horrific! Congratulations, Bryn--you've earned it.
