The Stranger

Alanna Belak’s atmospheric end-of-the-world short story “An Ending” appeared in issue #28 of Neon. Since then she’s gone on to write the screenplay for a remake of Orson Welles’s 1946 film The Stranger. It tells the story of a reformed serial killer who has reinvented himself as a small-town professor but is visited by his former partner, who wants them to start killing together again.
