“Dark Music” – Scarlett R. Algee

A man who robs from the blind finds his way into The Building and The Lift. There, he gets a chance to change. When he’s forced to face his deepest fear will he learn from it, or go back to his old ways?

And, remember, if you ever find yourself on The Lift, don’t test Victoria’s patience.



Scarlett R. Algee has contributed to the anthologies Cthulhu Haiku and Cthulhu Haiku II, as well as to Morpheus Tales, DM du Jour and Sanitarium Magazine. Her most recent work is the story “Hattie’s Ghosts” in the forthcoming anthology A Shadow of Autumn. When not writing, reading, or editing, she crafts and sells steampunk jewelry through her Etsy shop, Copperwalk Designs. She lives in rural west Tennessee with four dogs and an uncertain number of cats.

“I focus on writing soundscapes that will make the media immersive rather than having music that is distinctive. I intend to make all sounds illustrate the worlds that the media is set within.” ~ Nico Vettese
