THE MILL by Mark West (2011 Greyhart Press / 39 pp / eBook cb)
West's chapbook deals with a group of people who meet to counsel each other over the recent loss of a loved one. When Michael's wife Nicola succumbs to breast cancer, he begins having strange dreams that a counselor had warned him about. He soon disdovers that Saskia (another recent widow) has been having similar dreams about a local place where an old mill once stood.
THE MILL is a depressing yet eerie ghost story featuring some sharp writing and a dark yet comforting ending. Fans of Gary A. Braunbeck will eat this up.
