[Formerly Featured/Award-Winning 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.

I love this chapter. Again very smartly described and well written. The flow of story is very smooth. The characters are very realistic. I feel really bad for Aleksy.

I'm not sure if tiny little grammar notes are something that's helpful to you, but  in the dialogue, there's a comma missing between "me" and "Aleksy." 
                              
                              I only mention this because the polish in the story is really evident.

So the footprints belong to the unpronounceable monster thingy right? So weird how in my head I'm trying to read it in a Russian accent. Not doing a very good job obvs. V
