    Whispering campfire, sudden terror, and kappa

    Stuart may have a license to hunt, but all he really wants from his forest trip is a little peace and quiet. His paperwork says he's hunting bear. The stranger who shares his fire is hunting kappa. And kappa is something Stuart has never heard of.

    The forest may hold other dangers besides kappa and bear. Fishermen may be drunk. The kappa hunter may be mad. And anyone may be dangerous. But in J.K. Swift's short story, Kappa Hunter, there's a pleasing blend of peaceful forest, dark shadows, whispering campfire and sudden terror. Maybe the world's a bigger place than it seems, and maybe the forest, not office work in town, offers a true view of reality.



    Disclosure: I read the winning story Kappa Hunter in the short story section of the Dan Poynter Global eBook Awards.
