Check It Out: Henry Basset




Arrival by Henry Basset 
Short Story

A bear, known only as Caver, recounts when his planet was covered in nature and not yet tainted by human touch. Since then, humans have branched out from another world and enveloped his planet. The differences between the two species result in an atmosphere of fear which rips apart the old way of life and enforces the creation of an apparently more civilised one. However, how much will be lost in the process?

Short Story

There are many forgotten games we played as children, one of which was tag. You would call “Tag, you’re it!” just before making physical contact with another and something would pass from you to them, but what if that thing left something behind in you too?

An unknown entity has infiltrated an office, whilst the staff go about their daily routines unaware of its presence. As it systematically picks its victims, will those who remain suspect anything or will it succeed in consuming them all?


Recently Deceased by Henry Basset 
Short Story

Death is an instantaneous event. What follows is confusion and uncertainty. Join one individual at the moment in which their body and soul separate, yet are trapped together as they journey with the living to their final resting place.

Arrival is a chilling story of humanity and colonization. Human's have taken over and dominated and destroyed the local wildlife and natural resources. Something humans have done for centuries as they explore, this brings a new point of view, one that could easily be translated to colonization here on earth throughout history. But is it really more civilized?

Tagged is a fairly believable office horror. You always hear about corporate drones just doing the same thing day after day, and this takes it to extremes. Is what's making them drones supernatural?

Recently Deceased is surreal. A somewhat creepy look into what happens when our bodies cease to function but our soul remains. Brilliantly described the story may be short but it will absolutely consume you. Highly recommend if you're looking for a quick read.
