"The Knife" by Richard Adams

Yes, I do believe this is the very same Richard Adams of Watership Down fame.

This story is short. Really short. Not like Gaiman's "Nicholas was..." short, but only about two pages in this particular edition.

The story is intended to be somewhat disturbing, I think, and in that it somewhat succeeds.

I think.

We have a knife. A young man who wants to use it. And the thoughts of that young man as he considers his fantasies and the knife that is, in fact, very real.

Not too much more to say, frankly. Just glad to be back. Hopefully I can keep things up for a bit, though this weekend will be tough as we jaunt off to Texas for a short spell.
