My essay A Good Man, Dreadfully Punished: Frank Darabont's The Mist, has just been published in the first Electric Sheep Anthology, The End. The text is a 'fictional' adaptation of the events leading up to the downbeat conclusion of The Mist, examining what the end of the narrative signifies for the film's protagonist as well as the other minor characters within the film.

Here is a brief extract...
'It's the End of Days,' murmurs Mrs Carmody. The mist, dreadful in its density, rolls against the glass frontage, pressing against it as if it wrre a solid mass, sealing off the customer's view and stranding them in the supermarket. The large panes, reinforced, may later bow, crack, splinter and break but for now, at least, they hold.

The book is available via Strange Attractor Press by following this link.
