Well, my loss is your gain. My schedule got a little muddled this month, so I’m pleased to announce the release of Bellarion, by Raphael Sabatini will be released in a few weeks. Set in pre-Renaissance Italy, Bellarion is a nameless orphan who is raised by monks, and rises to political prominence. Applying his scholarly training to the intrigues of the court, coupled with his strong sense of duty, Bellarion is a thrilling adventure.

Look for a healthy sampling in the next couple of weeks!

Today’s story is the first part of The Wendigo, by Algernon Blackwood. The legend of the Wendigo originates from folk stories from the Plains and Great Lakes Native Americans. The creature is a malevolent spirit, known to possess and even eat humans.

Yep, he’s a charming fellow. So let’s dive in!

And now, The Wendigo, Part 1 of 2, by Algernon Blackwood.
