Matthew R. Black

Matt is from Conifer, Colorado and is in his last year in the Creative Writing school at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

“The Glass House” introduces a threesome on a vacation of sorts in a timeshare from hell. The premise is entirely realistic: incompatible people cramped together in very uncomfortable quarters causes one of them to blow his top.

But the accommodations are not rustic: no log cabin in the mountains in winter, just a house made almost entirely of glass. On one hand, the architecture provides eerie symbolism for a horror story; on the other hand, the literal setting is so ludicrous that the scenario can easily be re-imagined as a farce.

Welcome to Bewildering Stories, Matt. We hope to hear from you again soon and often!
