A bit of a disappointment for a real fan of Blackwood's "The Wendigo." This is a fine horror story, but it tends to drag a bit and has a number of loose strings that should have been tightened. There are also some absurdities, but . . . it's fiction.
Amazing! Here's Bram Stoker outdoing H. P. Lovecraft! The writing is kinda "bad," but the story is literally and figuratively spellbinding.
