706: The Road Man by Aaron Vlek

Lights on the highway through the desert disappear in impossible ways and three mystified young brothers on a family road trip wonder why. The same car keeps passing them in the night, year after year after year on summer road trips and the boys fear it is the dreaded Road Man. This isn’t Area 51 and there are no aliens in sight, but the Road Man owns this stretch of all but deserted highway and he’s no urban legend.

STORY

Most families have secrets. But secrets always yearn to be known.

Join us as we explore the dark secret of one family. A secret with roots that run deep-- a secret that refuses to stay buried.


About the Author:

Aaron Vlek is a storyteller who works with the trickster mythos in its role as bringer of delight and proponent of disquieting humors. Some of her (yes, her) stories center around the goings on of the jinn, and of a universal imagining of the Native American character, Coyote. Some works are historical in setting while others occupy a contemporary and urban landscape. She also indulges frequently in the reimagining of classic themes of horror and the occult. Aaron is a graduate of Sarah Lawrence College.

Domine Canè, a short piece of speculative horror with a historic theme, appeared in the April 2015 issue of Bards and Sages Quarterly, Vol. VII, Issue II. The Black Meal, a work of speculative horror appeared in the October 2015 issue of Outposts of Beyond. At the Kids’ Table appeared in the 2015 Christmas Edition of Chicken Soup for the Soup. Eight additional stories have been accepted for publication throughout 2016.
