Ghoulies and Floating Islands


From Ghoulies and Ghosties, Long-Leggitie Beasties . . .

(Part 15)
Kenny had spent the afternoon drawing monsters in his math workbook:  vampires, ghouls, giant spiders, frankensteins, werewolves..  

(Continued tomorrow.)

And my commentary . . .

As mentioned yesterday, Kenny is an imaginative kid.  Here it's suggested -- just suggested -- that he may have unintentionally called the eyeless man to him.  Summoned him up, as it were, from the depths of the human mind.

You can read all of the story to date here.

And this morning . . .

I went to the ocean and, looking through binoculars, saw a mirage:  An island on the horizon which seemed to float above the water.  It was wooded and there were white-walled buildings to one side of it, but there was definitely a line of clear sky between it and the sea.

I'm going to set a story on that island someday.  Maybe even a mainstream story.
