The second issue of XZ has arrived! Welcome to XZ#2. This issue explores the chilling world of Gothic Horror. In case you missed the first issue, let us fill you in. XZ is our collaborative fiction project and each issue focuses on a particular genre. XZ#1 was a Noir masterpiece (you can read it here, and read a review of it here). Each XZ is a single story written in segments by six writers per issue. They aren’t given any clue as to what the others are writing, only a bare bones framework of their section. When compiled, a new story emerges that is more than the sum of its parts.
Without further ado, please enjoy XZ#2. Horvath is the tale of a young man, running from a dark past, who is called to attend to a mysterious gentleman. Is he more than he seems or is it an encroaching madness?
