THE PORTRAIT OF SAL PULLMAN

Read it for free online!

Renowned artist Sal Pullman can hardly believe his hands are responsible for the painting before him: an all-too-real rendition of some grotesque monster. The work continues to haunt him when he discovers others perceive it as a stunning self-portrait. The painting feeds off the praise of its admirers, and Sal must find a way to keep his art at bay before it consumes him and the ones he loves.

 

"There's something delightfully gothic, or even in the vein of Edger Allan Poe, in this story. The chills penetrate our psyche just as madness penetrates Pullman. This is the work of great horror, getting under our skin and having something deeply meaningful, and unsettling, to say." - Michael Moreci, author of Roche Limit and Burning Fields
