Great story. To add to what GNT observed, this could have been a Night Shift entry, easily. As Ms. Mod intimated, you thought it might have turned out to be diifferent, more of a literary tale, but this was all pernicious plot/premise, and the tension as it sped along was palpable, as I knew something was up, amiss, whatever you want to term it...

I hope this means a collection of short stories may be on the way in the near future (even beyond the novella collection)...
