Missing mailmen and shrinking house [Jan. 22nd, 2015|12:16 pm]
A Book Club For The Obsessive Reader


Hi, I am having alot of trouble remembering a story I once read and I was wondering if it might sound familiar to anyone. The story is about a mailman who moves to a new city for a new job. This particular town has had three mailmen in as many months. No one knew what happened to the missing mailmen. The new mailman soon encounters a house on his route that he doesn't want to go near. It is the last house on a dead end street. Every day that he sees the house it appears to be getting smaller and smaller. I remember that he discovers that the mailmen all disappear because of this house. At the end the mailman disappears with the house. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I would greatly appreciate it if you could help me save my sanity.

I have no idea what that story was but it sounds like a horror story from an anthology maybe? Was it a full-length book or a shorter story? I'd just start searching online Googling stuff to find out.

I think it was a short story from an anthology. I have googled everything I can think of.
