"A paroled monster, a prostitute and a policeman all see a little girl lost, but this isn't the start of a joke. What can such a morsel do, when all that's left to rely on is the kindness of strangers?"
Strangers is part of a suite of short sci-fi, fantasy and horror stories by BP Gregory, each its own little maelstrom of human suffering and longing. Includes adult themes.
Strangers can be enjoyed alone or as part of Orotund: Collected Short Stories Volume 2, which is also available in print.
