From the author of Slow Foreplay On a Fast Bus comes All The Heart's Fault.
There is a knock on the door.
It is the silence of the night.
You come awake slowly.
The knock won't go away.
You realize it is time again.
Death is at the door once more.
Also by the same author, The Killing of Train-Man Brown and Send Me a Friend and many, many more short stories.
