Excerpt

ned silent.

"Greyfellow, you saw what happened to the boy and I imagine one or two of you others have seen it too. I don't know what did that but I am going to find out. I have no doubt that it's very dangerous. I know you're probably not going to listen to me but I'm going to say it anyway. Don't go out there. Let me find out what I can. When I do I will let you know and let you help but right now we don't know what did that." It was the longest speech Longhorn had given to anyone since arriving in the village. The eight men at least seemed to consider his words but they looked to Greyfellow and the grizzly man just looked at the sheriff.

"We take care of our own, Longhorn. We'll find what did it and we'll bring it back on a spit." Longhorn looked into the eyes of each of the eight men and saw nothing but anger in their eyes. He watched as the group headed into the woods with packs on their backs and weapons on their belts. He hoped they found nothing. He hoped nothing found them. 5

*****

A very good monster story, set who-knows-where -or-when. A giant man-bear stalks the woods and is itself hunted by Char, a grim man with a bow. It moves from region to region, killing any people in its path.
Moody, tense, and bloody, the story has good characters and nice descriptions.

****.

Quite gripping horror/supernatural short story playing on the vampire/werewolf theme, but in the form of a gigantic bear. An ostracised Sheriff, a multi-talented monk and a strange giant of a man, set off into the dark woods to try and hunt down a huge beast that has been terrorizing the Sheriff's town by tearing any unfortunate inhabitants out late to pieces.
