From the editor:
We have read over your story, The Face of Evil, and decided to pass on it. It has a terrific and interesting premise, however there were some things that did not work for us.
Generally, as horror writing goes, leaving a lot to be explained or worked out by the reader adds to the mystery surrounding the story. And while that is good in general practice, in some cases leaving too much to the unknown gives the reader no basis to stand on. As it is, the reader has a hard time connecting with the protagonist, Lorenzo, and without that connection, without some semblance of understanding, everything needs to be explained.
By filling in a few blanks, youʼll make this story fantastic and it will be highly marketable.
