The story takes place Halloween day, having just been introduced to the reality of their curse the night before. The bumbling pair are going about their normal routine independently of each other, until Bubba sees a familiar face take the stage at the Busty & Lusty. Quickly we see our pair turn into a trio, as Hattie (succubus) makes a return in this adventure. As Bubba is trying to fill Cecil in on the events of the day thus far, in walk some very official men into Cecils' place of employment with more than just car trouble! Before you know it the fate of mankind is resting in the hands of our favorite good ol' boys again. Will they be able to make it two in a row, or is this the end for Cecil and Bubba??
Terry performs at an incredible level with this work. The story is very atmospheric, with a feel that took me back to the days of drive in double features. He is able to blend multiple genres seamlessly with elements of horror, science fiction, drama and even redemption into a story that is sure to appeal to all. Cecil and Bubba Meet the Thang is a full throttle scary, fun, ride. It offers interesting twists and unexpected emotional turns, the likes of which a very rare in a short, let alone a comedy horror one. Terry M West can write with the best of them and Cecil and Bubba meet the Thang is a great example of why I say that! It is a story I will revisit often over the years to come which is the highest recommendation any reader can give.
