My Review:

When the author reached out and made it clear this wasn't a joke, I couldn't help but say YES to a horror short story about sock puppets.  Hell hath no fury like a sock puppet scorned. šŸ¤£

In the first couple of pages or so, I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this.  Puppet erotica with all their ambitious "love-knitting".  Puns abound - and I'm a lover of puns but sometimes it can be a bit *too* much.  Then again, if you're reading a story about scorned sock puppet, then you're boundaries are probably not that thick. I don't even know what I'm saying now.

As the story grew further, I couldn't help but enjoy myself and rooting for Camille.  I grew to enjoy the absolute punniness of it all.  My favorite part is probably she tells Brad that 'She's not the right sock for you.  I'm the right sock for you and you're the left for me.' I die.  

This was simply a fun horror short story with sock puppet sex and revenge.  What more could you ask for??
