*EXCERPT*
The Manor of Solitude by Katherine Dempster

When the first of them came to wipe their boots on his porch mat, knocking on his door, peering in his windows, his manners crossed his lips as he asked them to leave; never noticing the first twitch in his eye as he closed the creaking old door in their smiling faces. But as time wore on, and every Sunday afternoon another group of do-gooders pushed into his boundaries, the tight politeness of his rebuff started to crack. Just as death had breathed life into his world, new life was taking it away.

The decision to thin the herd came as suddenly as his shovel onto the first one’s neck.
