I'm posting this older story to honour the return of ancient site member, geordietaf, whose stories about Slipkin and Vicky inspired this Truckerson epic - so much so that they appear in it!

Horror

Sorry I've not been around in a while, due to the birth of my son Joel over 7 months ago. This is the first time I have been able to write anything to do with Grimeon's Pass since just before his birth. I've added a little bit more to this since I posted and have tweaked the parts that I thought jarred and didn't come across too well. My reason is because I need to try and reach my target of 50k - 80k for a Y.A novel. Laura heads off into Eastham to get away from the brats singing and piano lessons. A quirky shop with an eccentric old lady throws her curiosity into turmoil and conjours up more questions that need answers.
