Graveyard Book

The Honor Guard by Spiderfire

'There is another sort of darkness, a darkness that is velvet soft and thick, a darkness that encases, wraps, surrounds. In such darkness, there is nothing to see, nothing to hear. It is complete, seeping into the hearts of anyone who dares venture into it.' Spiderfire invents an interesting mythological underpinning to the novel's Honour Guard in this atmospheric short

We Don't Forget by Chibideath

'"Hullo?" he called. He tried not to feel foolish. He had grown up speaking to people who weren’t there, strictly speaking, but he was a bit out of practice.' Lovely bittersweet coda to the book, with a voice that's very true to the original
