"That stern quality of the tangled backwoods which can only be described as merciless and terrible rose out of these far blue woods swimming upon the horizon and revealed itself. He understood the silent warning. He realized his own utter helplessness."
- Algernon Blackwood, "The Wendigo"
Three authors. Three chilling tales of malevolence and inhuman appetite for The Cthulhu Hack.
Wolves in the Mountain by Richard August
A man staggers into an isolated town with a story of murder and madness. A small group ventures into the wilderness, in search of the truth. But out in the mountains there lies something darker and stranger than they can possibly imagine... and blood. Lots and lots of blood.
Lovely, Dark and Deep by John Almack
Wherein the investigators go on a hunting trip in the Canadian wilderness, but soon wonder who is the hunter and who the prey.
Tainted Meat by Paul Baldowski
Out in the deep woods, a tiny settlement has fought to survive and won. When the travelling investigators arrive, they find proud, tough people and are welcomed with warmth and hospitality. Hard times behind them, why would anyone want to leave?
