Review: Tower

Tower - Daniel Arthur Smith

When the lights went out, Nathan Farthen was high in the tower at One World Trade. With the memory of 9/11 fresh in their minds, the workers trapped need to regroup and plan an escape. But when the mist creeps in, bringing the tentacles, Nate realizes that this attack is far from mundane, the actions of something other than human.

Would they be able to survive?

This short story is delightfully creepy. With a Lovecraftian feel, the unexpected horrors that await our protagonist and his new coworkers will keep the readers on the edge of their seats, hoping for the best while wondering what will come next. I really hope to someday find out what exactly happened to bring these events to New York City.
