On the Fifth Day, Part I by Michael Daigle (Diane Havens) by Diane Havens published on 2013/02/28 16:28:36 +0000 The Poe-like quality of this new short story by Michael Daigle held me in rapt attention to the end, and its semi-mad narrator was just delicious to record. Michael told me how the seed for the story was planted in his mind: "the story came out of a conversation I heard while walking on a sidewalk in Boston. A group of people were coming in the opposite direction and the group I was in stepped aside to let them pass. It was winter and the sidewalks had been badly shoveled and we were passing a large tree, so we just stepped out of the way. But one person in the other group said. '...and there was this old man sitting on the landing when I got home...' " This is part one, so check in next week for the conclusion.
