Here's a scary little story you wouldn't want to read to a child. Written in the style of H. P. Lovecraft, it concerns a man who has no name other than The Hunter, a man who is hired to hunt creatures that no other man can subdue. In this tale, the Hunter is summoned to a small village in the deep woods to find, and kill, whatever beast has been picking off the villagers one by one, leaving behind remains barely recognizable as human. This time, though, the Hunter comes up against something that even he might not be able to best.
