Short Bites: #connollyhouse #weshouldntbehere

I love Twitter threads. These can be especially funny when someone live tweets a strangers’ intriguing conversation at a coffee shop (think: Titas of Manila style). If the live tweeter is munching on popcorn, we can join in, too.

In “#connollyhouse #weshouldntbehere,” Seanan McGuire brings a haunted house to life through @boo_peep’s tweets. (@boo_peep and the crew have an accompanying live stream as well, but we readers are content with the tweets.) McGuire shows us how to rock a good story using an alternative medium.

I absolutely loved this story. Can someone please give Seanan McGuire a thousand gold stars for story, style, and execution? Thanks. But please don’t bother me again with ghost stories because no one’s home, and I’m done, done, done with scaring myself. Yet here I am still seeing What the #@$% is That? through… (See Those Gaddam Cookies and Little Widow for other short stories in the collection.)

PS: Earlier this week, I saw a copy of Seanan McGuire’s Middlegame, which I would have purchased earlier if not for my self-imposed book buying ban. If you’ve read it already, let me know how you liked it!
