Cornhusker: Demon Gene

Cornhusker: Demon Gene - Timothy C. Ward The main problem with any short story is that the author has very little time and space to leave a big, resounding impression on the reader and make them want to come back for more. I've read short stories that are instantly forgotten and ones that frustrate you simply because you want more and can't get it.
This for me fell into a horror/young adult category and was a decent read, normally its the sort I would avoid like the plague but it was entertaining enough for me to think 'is that all' at the end. Which is just the response you want from a short story, a full blown novel wouldn't interest me as its just not my thing but as a short its a good read and there is some potential here.
