The Light in the Cabin is the tale of a young man who is struck by terrible visions of what happens in a log cabin. It's a quick read and the end is a little predictable, but it is a fun, horror read. It builds a good sense of creepiness before unleashing the more visceral horror.
It reads in the present tense, which is difficicult to get right, unfortunately there is the occasional tense confusion. However the writing is well done and the author does a good job portaying the brutal scenes.
It's a quick read and well worth checking out if you enjoy twisted horror stories.
