The Hoard

The Hoard - Alan Ryker The hot and sultry farmlands of Kansas are the setting for this short but snappy little horror story by a new name to me in the horror genre Alan Rkyer. Anna Grish a lonely old woman eking out an existence is visited one day by a mysterious alien creature looking for a "host" for his hoard of invading "monster insect" infection/virus type friends (every home should have one!) Anna's son Pete is increasingly worried about his mothers odd "hoarding" behaviour and so against this sultry, dry harsh landscape of a hot Kansas summer our little story unfolds....and heads towards an unexpected conclusion.....
