Come Home to Roost
Recently finished this piece.
In 2005 author Dean Koontz released “Prodigal Son,” the first book in a series which re-imagines the story of Frankenstein. The idea of the created abomination returning to confront his maker was fascinating to me so I tried to try to capture the moment of being on the threshold of confrontation. What led to the decision to make a Man-Goat hybrid? Not sure. Where did Man-Goat get a rifle from and does he know how to shoot? Also not sure. What we can be fairly certain of, as Chaucer suggests in The Parson’s Tale, eventually our questionable words and deeds come back to confront us.
