New here and hoping you can help me locate an eerie short story I read in the early 90's. Here's what I recall:
A man sees something sticking up out of a lake and swims out to investigate. Turns out to be the roof of a house. There is a hole in the roof and he lowers himself down into the house. Even though it's almost completely underwater, the water inside is only a few inches deep. It's implied there is something sloshing around in the corner. He gets back on the roof and a rowboat slowly approaches.
Again, I read this short story in an anthology (paperback) sometime in the early 90's. The editor (?) said something before the story about how writing the story scared the author. I don't remember all the details, but I do know it gave me some real chills.
Thanks for any help you can give me!
