The Owl Flies at Night
This short story is an experimental parody in the modern ghost genre. It uses irony and an unreliable narrator in the tradition of Poe's 'The Tell-Tale Heart'.
The narrator, Dr Eric Swell is an entirely fictional character and all of his views are tongue-in-cheek. The irony of his point of view becomes apparent later in the story.
This is story which simply asks the question: 'What if?'.
What if there were mysteries in this world which shouldn't be experimented with?
Readers of a sensitive disposition and younger readers are advised to read the story with caution... after all, look at what happens to the good Dr Swell.
