The Swimming Lesson

This is the title of my latest short story, which has just gone 'live' over at Shotgun Honey.

The story was inspired by a photo I saw, of a man standing up to his knees in a beautiful blue sea, and beckoning.  It (the photo) was probably meant to be enticing but to me it looked ever-so-slightly unnerving.  Who was this man?  Who was he beckoning at, and why?  Perhaps I've seen Death in Venice one too many times, but it started a few things whirring in my mind and this story is the result.

You can read The Swimming Lesson (for free) here.  It's quite dark and twisted, but I hope you enjoy it anyway.
