...were the cries only in my mind? Could they have been a hallucination? Occasional flashes and brief moments of sight began to intrude upon my consciousness. At first just a hazy, sickly green light, then a hint of movement flashing across the field behind the light.
-From Empty Sockets, part one of The Yuggoth Contract by Nate French
Tyler Scindere, a trained killer for the Syndicate, accepted his most recent contract reluctantly. Something about it didn’t feel right, and the pay seemed too good to be true. Now, imprisoned in perpetual darkness, with pain as his only companion, he has plenty of time to consider where he went wrong... and why The Yuggoth Contract may be his last.
