I've read a few other short stories from Scott Nicolay and they've all delivered. 'Alligators' in the first issue of the Laird Barron edited Phantasmagorium from Gorgon Press is excellent, as is "Ana Kai Tangata" from the Aklonomicon and his up-coming story for Strange Aeons Magazine #10 will be sure to surprise. His rural sense of style sucks you into a false sense of security, slowly stacking the odds of fate to play out in horrific ways against the main characters in less than obvious ways.
Pay attention folks, Mr. Nicolay will sneak the ice-cream from your cone before you know it.
