The Black Fog: A Cosmic Horror Short Story is a work of fiction in the short story subcategory, and forms part of Newton's Macabre Tales. It is best suited to the adult reading audience for its horror theme and descriptions of graphic violence. Penned by Newton Webb, this spine-chilling tale takes readers off into a dangerously false sense of security when a sleepy little village is suddenly beset by a mysterious black fog. This little 1950s village isn’t keen to believe the rumors of a soul-swallowing presence deep within the fog, but they’ll soon come to know that there are powers beyond their expectations, and many have deadly consequences.
Newton Webb delivers a perfectly-packaged novella that’s ideal for a single cozy sitting, though perhaps not on a foggy night, lest you have nightmares. One of the features that stuck with me about Webb’s storytelling technique is the natural flow of dialogue and action in the characters, which made the work cinematic and easy to imagine as I read along. Ted was a highly relatable figure and central to the action, reacting just as I might have done to the horror and confusion which he saw from every angle. I felt that the choice of scenes was perfect to drum up as much mystery as possible before the true exposition kicked in, but even then there’s so much to bring out of the story and ponder after you’ve set it down. The Black Fog is a highly recommended read for horror fans everywhere and those wishing to discover a talented author with many a tale to tell.
