Hello - sorry to hijack this forum!

I'm thinking the short story you are referring to is "Born of Man and Woman" by Richard Matheson - mainly because there is mention of a graceful woman in it, and the main character's desire to be part of the family. It is an extremely chilling tale, and had a huge effect on me when I first read it - probably why I remember it so well!

Cheers

The story is titled "that only a mother..." I believe.

Experience

DUE TO LENGTHY ILLNESS, I AM NOT ANSWERING ANY QUESTIONS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. I APOLOGIZE. Far too many years reading and writing scary stuff. I tend to the mainstream, but do enjoy the quirky cult type as well, especially cheap paperback kinds. There si some stuff that I won't touch with a 50 foot pole, but what I don't know I will go to efforts to find it out or at the very least, direct you in the right direction. I am very cynical, so if you want me to review stuff or give my opinion, then don't expect it to be an optimistic one.
