    I also wondered about the possible Pennywise connection for exactly the same reasons Falseprohet stated. I worked out what "Elvid" was but surmised he could maybe be another incarnation of Pennywise, we know he is capable of changing his appearance easily. I love Pennywise though so maybe just want to believe it was him.

    This story left me feeling frustrated and disgusted.

    I started feeling empathy for Streeter and could comprehend him wanting to save himself, and maybe not fully understanding the consequences of his "trade." Yet he enjoyed/took great pleasure in what happened to his friend and his family. Not once did he show remorse for his part in it, and I really wanted to see him get his comeuppance. I disliked his character immensely...oouuu nasty man!
    Great job SK.

    With Fair Extention, I really did not know what to expect. But the outcome of it blew me away.

    How could ANYONE just back and do nothing, when he knew perfectly well that he was responsible?

    Keep in mind, the title is FULL DARK. These are stories about the worst of us, or the worst in us. In "1922",

    Wilfred kills his wife of greed, and reaps a nasty price.
    ; in "Big Driver",

    Tess discovers just what she can be capable of in her search for revenge, and just how she can feel redemption for it
    ; and "A good marriage" is about the acceptance of

    the murder of Bob Anderson by his wife Darcy.
    It's about the breaking of taboos by people, and how sometimes their "sins" are punished and others, not. It's a disturbing book in that the conventions of morality are stripped away, that sometimes we do evil things and are punished, that sometimes people who haven't sinned suffer, and that sometimes those of us who think we are good will commit an evil act more or less out of the blue.

    The character I thought of most was the character from Morality very similar particularly the changing of shape

    I don't recall any similarities between Morality and Fair Extension.... Which character in Morality?

    I agree, I picture Leland Gault and Elvid the same. Could it be that Leland came around again?

    I've always assumed it was the devil, with the name Elvid and all.

    I'd have to go back to double-check, but I think you may be reading more into a Pennywise connection to Fair Extension/Elvid than was intended.
    Greetings, Ms. Mod!

    It seems like we've had this discussion before, unless I'm mistaken..?
