Why did I pick the opening sentence as the one to sum up the last story? Because the entire piece hinges on what Giorgios knows that you don’t. Which is quite a bit.
And yes, I know common wisdom says not to open a story with dialogue. Meh to that. In this case, I wanted an impeding sense of “what the hell is going on?”.
Also, it was while writing this the story that I learned of the parallels between my work and Supernatural.
There is a subtle nod to the show in this piece, though I leave it to fans of the show to find it. In a way, this gave birth to next’s Monsters of Pittsburgh story.
Wendigo is a parody/celebration of Supernatural and the completely unplanned and random parallels between my work and that show.
