I’m very excited to present this weeks featured writer, Rocky Hutson. Here at DPW, we are always on the search for original work that showcases unique styles of writing: that’s exactly what we have found with Mr. Hutson’s short story, King of Crows.
This story has a very cool, yet peculiar take on the animating of a scarecrow. At the base there is a primal fear brought on by its presence, but at the same time you also feel for the scarecrow. You understand why he’s doing what he’s doing—and you have to respect it.
The imagery of how the scarecrow comes to be is written beautifully and in great detail; as well are the emotions crafted by Mr. Hutson. What this story accomplishes is no small feat—you find yourself frightened yet simultaneously rooting for, or at least understanding of, the scarecrow. I hope you guys enjoy this piece as much as I have.
