The idea that the visitors would make themselves known to us by actually living among us is fascinating and intriguing. It is my guess that every neighbourhood has its version of the stories main character. It would be interesting to read a sequel which examines the visitors' response to widespread violence against them.

'The Good Neighbor' is lively story, certainly reminiscent of "Twilight Zone". I enjoyed the story and Whitley's reading. For me it is a humorous tale. The laugh on us. The gift of a new life is a gift of compassion. Revenge may be one thing, and to use 'revenge' as a gift of great worth is another.
Thanks Whitley, for sharing this story with us.
