You Know How the Story Goes, by Thomas Olde Heuvelt

★★★☆☆ Average

(Ghost Story) In midwinter, just after midnight, the narrator hitches a ride with a strange woman as cold as the night itself. (7,033 words; Time: 23m)

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: It’s suitably creepy—like any good ghost story. Lots and lots of tension, even though the first-person narration tells us he survives.

Con: It falls apart when we see the giant zombie lady chasing him in the tunnel. At that point, it stops being scary and becomes comical.
