A Novelette By Robert Swartwood


If you have reached this page, I’m assuming you have finished Through the Guts of a Beggar. And if you have, I want to thank you. I hope you enjoyed it, and if not, well, I hope you at least found some of it entertaining.

Below now is the place to have your say. Please just note that obvious spam will be forwarded to the government’s top secret Spam Tracking Division (yes, that STD) which will hunt you down and feed your eternal soul to the fires of hell.

Or it will just be deleted.

  1. I liked it, liked the voice. I wish I hadn’t seen that it was a high school story you revised, since that colored how I approached it, but as far as it being a good old-fashioned horror story, I couldn’t ask for anything more.

  2. Robert, I read it all in one sitting. I had to know what happened next. This is exactly why I am glad to have come across the Web Fiction Guide; to find fun reads just like yours.
