[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.

Love this last paragraph of this chapter. This easily makes me motivated to read chapter two.
Listen to your father kid. He knows what horrors await for him outside these doors. ;)
Amazing start. I was immediately drawn Into the story and i have so many questions!! What exactly is out there? Is there another force besides the cold? How long has this been happening? Where is peter Dinklage? 
                              
                              Anyways I loved the story and can’t wait to read more my friend.
