Hell itself

 

A quotation from Douglas Thompson’s brilliant story ELEANOR in ‘BOOK’ (InkerMen Press 2011):
“A pernicious, corrosive influence, a cancerous cell. She half-imagined it glowing like uranium, burning a hole through her table then her carpet then her floor, making its way down through every storey then the ground, making its way back to the earth’s core, Hell itself.”

first read by me today 3 Aug 2012.
