From the Flap


The first scream came from the snowbound railwayman who felt the fangs ripping at his throat. The next month there was a scream of ecstatic agony from the woman attacked in her snug bedroom.

Now scenes of unbelieving horror come each time the full moon shines on the isolated Maine town of Tarker Mills.

No one knows who will be attacked next.

But one thing is sure.

When the moon grows fat, a paralyzing fear sweeps through Tarker Mills. for snarls that sound like human words can be heard whining through the wind. And all around are the footprints of a monster whose hunger cannot be sated...




This was originally intended to be published in the format of a calendar with twelve vignettes, one for each month of the year.  It grew into a short novel and was first published as a limited edition through Land of Enchantment.
