This previously unpublished story, an anonymous “novelization” of a movie written and directed by Bud “Budget” Preston, was scheduled to appear in issue 102 of MONSTER PROJECT magazine. I uncovered the story as I was researching my forthcoming novel, LIFE IN A HAUNTED HOUSE, which fictionalizes elements of Preston's life and filmography.

"The Lake Monster" recreates the strange dialogue and surreal images of Preston's low-budget monster film, in a self-contained, 9,000 word story.
