The Eclipse by DJ Umber is the perfect story to read before the upcoming solar eclipse. I've never read anything like it, and I think the author should seriously consider turning this into a novel, or a novella, at the very least. The main character's playground battle, during his early years, is the perfect way to capture readers' imaginations. The creatures in this piece are both frightening and mysterious...I have so many questions about their existence. I'd love to see more revealed.
