It's Friday - hooray! This week, I'm reading to you from EF Schraeder's new horror humor novella, As Fast As She Can. Monsters as protagonists? Why, of course! Just a gentle warning to listeners that this is horror - take that as you need. Come have a listen :)

Living in a quiet house on the outskirts of town, Ginger isn’t like the other girls.
When she wakes up and discovers the unthinkable about her adoptive parents, she runs away and goes on a rampage straight to the only friend she has. Can she control what they both become?
With a violent, growing hunger and more questions than answers, Ginger has nowhere to turn.
