Comments for The Bone Man
Third in the December issue of Fantasy & Science Fiction is a ghost story called "The Bone Man" by Frederic S. Durbin.
"The Bone Man" is a grown up version of Ray Bradbury's Halloween Tree. Searching for a bite to eat, Conlin arrives at an idyllic middle of nowhere town just hours before the annual Halloween parade. Although this unnamed town is off the map, it manages to have a steady tourist population, all coming to see the Bone Man.
Not everyone can see the Bone Man and those who can aren't always happy that they can see him. Only the "luckiest" will actually be seen by Bone Man. Conlin, is one of the elite.
