One of many stories written with that title, the earliest to my knowledge being written, for the most part, by the wife of Cordwainer Smith from a fragment she found after his death.

At first I was disappointed to see it's really a short short story. And then it escalated fast to a whole new level of creepy. Good find, ArtW.

Hold Me is 99 cents on Comixology right now - one of the finest creepy stories that he's done IMHO.

Listen to Benedict Cumberbatch sing in Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere

I generally like Neil Gaiman, but I didn't care for this.

If it didn't have Gaiman's name associated with it, people would find it workmanlike, but generally unremarkable.
