Publisher's Summary

In a modern retelling of Edgar Allan Poe’s William Wilson by the author of The Old Drift, a young black man’s paranoia escalates as he is followed, challenged, and terrorized by a doppelgänger bent on sabotaging his life.

Ever since high school, somebody’s been playing the echo game on Will Williams. A look-alike with the same tattoos and the same name has been following him. Starting by implicating Will in petty crimes, and escalating to offenses with serious prison terms, he’s undermined every attempt Will has made to get his life on track. Now, drifting from city to city, Will’s doing everything in his power to outrun his shadow.

Will Williams is part of Disorder, a collection of six short stories of living nightmares, chilling visions, and uncanny imagination that explore a world losing its balance in terrifying ways. Each piece can be read or listened to in a single disorienting sitting.

Intense

I think this has to have been my favorite story of the entire collection. The narrator made me feel like I was fully a part of this story.

Meant to make you think....

This is quite an interesting story about a man haunted by himself-his doppelganger. There really is no explanation possible because it is his very personal unreality. Just as when he stomped someone and was put in juvenile detention, someone did get killed. We don't know who, but he believes it is his impersonator who did it. Delusion is his reality, and it doesn't appear that he is able to see the truth.

Unexplained

This wasn’t a bad story, but I was a little confused by a few things that were left unexplained.
