Mama’s Boy is an intriguingly creepy psychological horror short story by Jon Griffin. Donna Black’s not feeling too hot for a number of reasons. A mother-in-law from hell coupled with a husband who wears blinkers where her behaviour is concerned and a rather scary clown doll that does a lot more than just sit on the mantelpiece, all toy with a fraught sanity just about to snap. At just over twenty pages and costing less than a quid on kindle, Mamma’s Boy is well worth 15 minutes of your time.
