Easily engulfing as the fog which overwhelmed the main character as he drove along a stretch of highway, The Clarent Pin commands your attention with it’s neat, concise writing style and images that place you in Richard’s proverbial shoes. It’s a short story, so there’s a quick twist in the character’s behavior I found surprising, as what seemed a simple formless cloud grows into something infinitely more sinister.
Strange descriptions detail the stranger actions and emotions which plague Richard as he sinks deeper into a nightmare “non-world”. Distinct, shocking and memorable, after a suspenseful rise rise to climax, The Clarent Pin is a neat tale with a surprise ending that left me curiously satisfied.
