Turn Around Where Possible by Martin Pond
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
An unexpectedly and remarkably chilling short story, “Turn Around When Possible” takes a familiar setting-becoming lost while driving in a rural area-and makes it unforgettable. I still have chills from the story and expect to have for quite some time.
Modern couple Jo and Dan are out for a drive, on a dreary overcast day-a day which has already been too long and tiring. They’re hungry and weary, they just want to reach their destination; but they need to eat, and they need to stop and stretch. As an up-to-date modern couple, their car has a satellite navigation system, so getting lost should not even be a possibility; but it is-and taking just one wrong turn, let alone two, can be disastrous.
