Creatures gone astray (October Frights Blog Hop 3)

The horrors of creatures gone astray are best visible in a beautiful scenery
That was the motto of my novel Mermaid Quay. The reason for that is that the best thing about scary stories is, how they change the familiar. They are a twist, something that seems normal enough for us to feel uncomfortable the next time we encounter the real deal.

I have to be honest, there will be many creatures that I just won't find scary. Since I work with clonal insects in research, I just can't bring myself to be afraid of an army of clones in a novel. However, that doesn't mean that I can't write an army of clones that people who don't work with clones on a daily base might find difficult.
