Michael West’s 80’s-style monster tale, “The City Will Eat You Alive,” has been voted one of the 10 Best Horror Short Stories of 2017 in the annual P & E Readers Poll.  

In the story, released as a Christmas present to all of West’s faithful readers eagerly awaiting his next novel, “a young woman, trying to make it on her own in 1980s New York, encounters a pack of carnivorous subterranean creatures on her subway trip home.”

“Thank you to all my faithful readers, and all the people who voted, ” West said upon hearing the final results of the poll.  “Your support means the world to me!”

Available as a digital download on Kindle, Kobo, Nook, and other formats, the story became an instant Top 100 Bestseller when the pre-order window opened ahead of its holiday release by West’s publisher, Seventh Star Press.
