I always lock the door when I creep by daylight.

A.C. Wise's prose poetry is on full display here.  This story is a great example of Halloween moodiness with the smell of autumn on the wind.

All cat stories start with this statement: “My mother, who was the first cat, told me this...”

I really liked the language in this one, even though some metaphors/comparisons* were a bit cliche.

* I mean stuff like "his eyes were like to glowing embers", which is not from this story, but an example of what kind of term I mean. Sorry, I learned my creative writing terms in a language other than English.

The audio recording quality lost me at first, and the sudden audio effects (with no background, like rain?) took me out of the story a bit, but I'll be darned if I wasn't listening raptly by the end. Well done.
