Bewildering Stories welcomes...
Will Bernardara Jr.
Will lives in Detroit. He is a cofounder of a literary circle inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s The Serapion Brethren.
Our welcome messages normally consist, in part, of a summary that introduces the author to the readers. It seems advisable to forgo the formality here; you’re best advised to consult the author’s bio page. You’ll see why.
“Ninja Warning” does seem to have echoes of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s major influence on Romantic literature and the horror genre of the 19th and later centuries: a combination of realism and the macabre.
The ninjas are a gang of warriors who descend on a town and carry out a murderous rampage. However, their depredations resemble an extreme weather event that arrives in full force and sporadically dwindles away. Do the townspeople become inured to endemic violence? It hardly seems likely that crime, including terrorism, is a storm that will blow itself out.

Welcome to Bewildering Stories, Will. We hope to hear from you again soon and often!
