“The Puzzling Brain of Martha Tidberry” is a fine short story, written by one of my favourite Independent authors, Julie Elizabeth Powell.
Martha Tidberry is a lonely, sixty year old woman, who has had to live with her very strange and frightening “gift” since she was a small child. Her puzzling brain will not be ignored; she has no real control over what it shows her and it is something which she must keep a secret. Her fear has always been that people will not believe what she knows and will think she is insane. Martha’s brain not only shows her things, but also helps her find solutions to the evil she sees.
This interesting, dark short story drew me in and held my attention throughout. If you like your paranormal laced heavily with a dose of reality, this is for you!
