Publisher's Summary

Many tales have been told about the Wendigo, the man-eating monster of Algonquin legend. But how many times has the Wendigo ever spoken for himself?

Step inside and take a gander at the mind of the top predator in Canada's North Woods.

    Story
    "Cold, wind, and the scent of blood."

    As a lover of horror, I really enjoyed "I AM the Wendigo".
    The atmosphere is great, the voice of the narrator fits perfectly, and his acting is absoluletly on spot. The sound effects are a little too loud a few times, wich does not help the understanding, but works well overall, and helps the immersion. I could feel the cold winter wind on my skin.
    The story is intriguing. As the title tells, the story is narrated by the monster, and as it is expected from a dark being with a hunger of human flesh, he is merciless, sadistic, and cold. The tension is built up well, and the killings are brutal enough to satisfy the bloodlusty little wendigo in our hearts.
    If you like horror, creatures, and chilling atmosphere, give it a try. I recommend listening it sitting next to a window at night.
    Have fun!

    "Bone Chilling"

    A scary story about a monster who stumbles on a scene more horrifying than him, I Am the Wendigo is expertly performed and wonderfully written.

    Story
    "Delectable morsel of horrific fun"

    This is a bite-sized morsel of horror with a nice pinch of something akin to justice as a side dish. Quinn's writing is eerily evocative and effective and Collins lends just the right air of gleeful, lurking menace to deliver the goods. A rare story that is well-done. Bon appetit!

    Story
    "This was a very strong piece of audio horror."

    I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys hearing their scares as opposed to reading them.

    The story itself is well-written and compelling. The narrative offers a unique perspective into the mind and pattern of a monster. It’s driven more by atmosphere than by plot, which perfectly reflects the animalistic nature of the creature being depicted. The description of what’s happening in the moment serves to bring the listener into a vivid and chilling environment.

    What I liked best about the piece was how the writing style serves to leave a strong impression of the Wendigo without going into too much detail. A lot of the legends from which Wendigos originate are vague in physical details with a heavier focus in hunting patterns, as was the case here. Quinn has found an excellent balance between imagery and action that honors the roots of these tales.

    The one aspect that I found to be lacking was the sound mixing for the clip. The narration itself was not bad, though it was perhaps a bit overstated at times. If you, like me, prefer the more subtle horror then you may find that the reading by Loren Collins a tad dramatic. Although this was something that bothered me initially, I found that a few minutes in it actually added a level of appreciation, as it reminded me of the older horror radio segments. What I did take lasting issue with was actually the sound effects in the background. While the intention was obviously to draw attention to the strong atmosphere presented in the text, I felt like they were a bit too loud and a bit too inconsistent, which actually drew my attention away from the story at a few key points.

    Aside from my nitpicking at the sound mixing however, this was something that I enjoyed immensely. I feel incredibly lucky to have received a promotional code from the author himself, and am looking forward to reading more of his work in the future. If you get the chance to check it out, I hope you do.
