The Numbers by Christopher Burns

As chapbooks are so short (typically 8 - 18 pages), to give a storyline would spoil the thrill of this spine-tingling tale!

Peer & Press Reviews

Laconic, understated and shocking.  The atmosphere is powerful and the turning point utterly unexpected.  A very chilling story from a true and original talent.

Margaret Drabble, author of The Dark Flood Rises

In the short story there is never room for padding, but what makes the excellent short story writer stand out from the merely competent is an ability to make every word and every image contribute to the span of the story without being obtrusive or self-conscious.  Christopher Burns most certainly does this in The Numbers.

Cath Barton, Sabotage Reviews

Praise for The Numbers and Jackdaws by Neil Campbell…

But it can be said that both stories illustrate Nightjar Press’s ethos: short stories beautifully told, which unsettle the reader with accumulating, unnerving detail.  Each story is exactly as long as it needs to be and lingers in the mind long after reading.

James Everington, This is Horror
