The Vagrant by Bryan Hall
The Vagrant is a supernatural fiction story about Creighton “Crate” Northgate. Crate can see the spirits of those who have passed and helps people who are being tormented by them.
He comes across a homeless man outside of a gas station. Next to the man, is a well-dressed man. Crate finds out that the well-dressed man is a spirit haunting Ed, the homeless man.
The Vagrant was an. . .interesting read. It was a short story, only 26 pages. I felt like it could have been more developed and made into a novel. I feel like that would have done the story more justice. The story itself was very intriguing. I feel like it was rushed to make it into a short story rather than make it into a full novel.
I have to say I give it 3.5/5 stars. If it were a bit longer, there could have been some more backstory for the main character as well as some more action in it.
