I read it once over and I did like it but is it ever hard core. If this story was developed any further it might be banned, but not quite. This is real horror here, and it is full of grit. The story is stretched, not unlike, "The Terrible Old Man", but you have the intent. The picture is a nice story telling angle, that could go somewhere and that I'm not sure that I recognize in other stories. What an evil story this one is.
