What you need to know before your trail

The first scream came from the snowbound railwayman who felt the fangs ripping at his throat. The next month there was a scream of ecstatic agony from the woman attacked in her snug bedroom.

Now scenes of unbelieving horror come each time the full moon shines on the isolated Maine town of Tarker Mills. No one knows who will be attacked next. But one thing is sure.

When the moon grows fat, a paralyzing fear sweeps through Tarker Mills. For snarls that sound like human words can be heard whining through the wind. And all around are the footprints of a monster whose hunger cannot be sated..

Travel Guide

Tarker Mills

Obviously a fictional town as if were real there’d be no body left. STephen King creates the ultimate small town community feel but this community is paralysed with fear, not to mention a werewolf or animal of some description terrorising the town.

The scene is dark and the sense of foreboding building to a tension like no other. It  might be a small town, with nice homes and far away from the big city but once every month the full moon seems to bring some very unwanted visitors.

The words are quite sparse but they build up the pictures which are also in the novella. The thought that someone is here in this town in plain sight yet able to do so much damage and death is chilling.

Read this close to Bonfire Night as the fireworks scene will make you make you appreciate those bangs a great deal more.
