My book “Toward Graphic Belles Lettres” is sold out. But here is one of its stories :
“BEHEST WITH 5 FINGERS”
This title was inspired by the 1928 classic horror strory “The Beast With Five Fingers” by William Fryer Harvey. Harvey’s tale was about a hand after it was severed from a body. Our story, conversely, is about a body before it is severed from a hand. Such mere details notwithstanding, “Behest With 5 Fingers” was named in homage to a giant of the genre.
