It's nearly Halloween!

In that spirit, Alex reads his acclaimed suspense short story Obsidian.

Catch a disturbing glimpse of the night with this multiple award-winning short story in the tradition of The Twilight Zone. A man awakens in a secluded cabin to find he's being watched by a shape with obsidian eyes. Who or what is watching him, and why? 

This story is the winner of the Shelf Unbound/Wattpad 2011 Short Fiction Award and the April 2010 WritingRoom Award.
