Review copy

Sebastian Bendix is a Los Angeles based writer and musician, as well as host of a popular midnight horror film series, Friday Night Frights at the Cinefamily. Taking that into consideration, it's easy to see how this fun little story came about.

Shriek of the Harpy is the story of blogger Muriel Sharpe who gets her dream job as a film archivist. Her first assignment is at "The Old Nick", an abandoned movie theater in downtown Los Angeles.

Her duties were to catalog a collection of old movie reels keeping an eye out for any lost prints from years gone by. When she discovers such gems, she can't help herself and she holds her own private screening. It's when she discovers the horror film "Shriek of the Harpy" that thinks go oh so wrong. "...the thing remembered most by the small number of people who saw Shriek of the Harpy was the blood-curdling sound the Harpy made when it attacked its victims, the "shriek", as it were. It was a sound so awful that it gave viewers nightmares for weeks afterwards."

Whether the events that follow actually happen or are the result of a mental breakdown on Muriel's part is left to the reader to decide, but either way, this story is every bit as fun as an old scary movie.

Shriek of the Harpy was submitted for reading to be considered for nomination for a Bram Stoker award. The work is self-published and available as an e-book at Amazon.com.
