I am the Wendigo

Many tales have been told about the Wendigo, the man-eating monster of Algonquin legend. But how many times has the Wendigo ever spoken for himself?

Step inside and take a gander at the mind of the top predator in Canada’s North Woods. First published in the horror webzine CHIMAERA SERIALS in 2007, this dark tale also appears in the collection FLASHING STEEL, FLASHING FIRE.

Melon Heads

Ian Barnes and his girlfriend Sarah Haley are heading back to Ohio University after a brief trip home before exams and homecoming, only to be run off the road by Sarah’s vicious ex-boyfriend Daniel Smythe.

Hunted through the woods by Daniel and two of his Pi Iota Gamma brothers, Ian and Sarah find there are worse things in the Ohio woods than murderous frat boys–the pint-sized monsters known as the Melon Heads!

Fans of creature features and urban legends alike will enjoy this darkly humorous horror tale. The story also appears in the collection FLASHING STEEL, FLASHING FIRE.
