[Formerly Featured/Novella/#2 in Horror]

There is something eerie about this village -- this hole of silent, maddened people.

In 1922 my Papa told me of a faceless entity that lurks amongst us in our isolated slice of Russia. The locals have kept this horror alive for a century, though the only ones who claim to have seen the Folveshch have succumbed to a life of sightless silence. 

My name is Stefan Alyovich and the people around me are changing. They slip into worsening madness every winter, and I ask myself: how much longer before I'm the only sane one left?

... The only one left alone with the Folveshch.

Finally! I've always found Eastern Europe and Russia perfect for a horror. But there are only a few works of it.

Okay it's night time and I'll have to push pause here lol I am such a wimp when it comes to horror 😆 (I get scared when trying to write my own even)  but I love your style of writing, it keeps the reader (i.e. Me lol) reading and I don't usually read horror books this is like my second one xD
A chillingly wonderful opening chapter. I'm just did I miss this before? I'm looking forward to reading more.
