Product Description

Product Description

Bill Harrigan is dying.

The doctors insist old Bill has Alzheimer's, which his son Andrew can't believe - his father was healthy only months before, spending his retirement hiking through the Andes. But maybe there's more to Bill's sickness... something insidious that even Andrew can't see. Something that's eating him from the inside out.

What You Bring Back is a 3000 word body-horror piece in the vein of Philip K Dick and David Cronenberg, but is also a story of the love shared between a father and son in their final days together. What You Bring Back was also collected in Past The Borders, a six story, $2.99 collection of science fiction and horror by Christopher Ruz.

This is a beautifully written story about a son and his father, who has Alzheimers, but it developes into something much more scary. It was so easy to read, I would Like to see more by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth The Trip 18 May 2012
By Rich Larson - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This is another unnerving tale from Christopher Ruz with the usual slick prose and intriguing turns, but also an emotional spark that sets it apart. What you'll get here is not only terrific atmosphere, dialogue, and some real gut-turning imagery, but also a potent exploration of a father's dementia. It's that human element that made this story stick with me for a long time after reading--I'd go so far as to say it haunts. Great spec-fic story and also a great story, period.
