You might as well hear it from me. There are certain rumors going about. Some people think your grandpa killed your grandma.”It honestly made me laugh. “That’s ridiculous. He loved her more than anything.” When Martin didn’t reply, I crossed my arms and asked him: “Why on earth would he have killed her?”“To survive, of course. There was this whole case concerning the plane crash. Your grandpa was detained by the Canadian police for like three months before he was allowed to return home. He was the sole survivor, so no one could really confirm what he said had happened.”“Why would that need to be confirmed? He had nothing to lie about!”“The police apparently thought your grandma was murdered by someone. They never found her body, you know. I guess that’s kind of weird.”“Yeah, well, it doesn’t mean he killed her,” I told him—I probably sounded pretty angry by now, because I was.“Listen, I’m on your side,” he said. “I’m just telling you what people are saying. I’ve known your grandpa my whole life, and I don’t think for a second he could hurt anyone.

Human Flesh is set in the throes of winter. A family ski trip to Pittsfield is cancelled after Michael Cochran sprains his ankle whilst shovelling snow on the driveway of the family home. Not wanting his son and daughter, Hugh and Otha to miss out on a vacation he suggests that instead they go and visit their grandpa, Fred who lives on a farm on the outskirts of Freyston, a remote town in Maine. When they arrive in Freyston Fred isn’t waiting for them at the train station, he has forgotten to pick them up. Being only a small town with a small community where everyone knows each other a local called Martin who lives near Fred takes Hugh and Otha to the farm. When the trio arrives at the farm, it seems deserted, empty and void of life. While searching the house Otha spots Fred standing, staring out of the window in a darkened room. Something feels off to her, it doesn’t feel like her grandpa, like his comforting presence. Fred looks different, gaunt, haunted and taller with pitiless black eyes and for a moment it even looks like he has antlers. That image of Fred, of a creature superimposed over his features, is only glimpsed by Otha in passing. There one second and gone the next before it is Fred standing there, once again her grandpa. There are various rumours surrounding Fred that have circulated throughout Freyston over the years. Fred’s wife died years ago in a plane crash and Fred was the only survivor of the accident. The plane crashed miles from anywhere in the wilderness, in the freezing cold and rumours have persisted about how Fred was able to survive when all others on board, those who survived the initial crash all perished. Since the crash, Fred has had episodes of going into a trancelike state and acting strangely. Otha is concerned about her grandpa, his acting weirdly, his episodes of vacant staring and she thinks that he might be showing the early stages of dementia. She wants to uncover the truth as Fred’s erratic behaviour isn’t normal, it is disturbing and there is something wrong with her beloved grandpa. There are other occurrences that add to the disquiet that both Otha and Hugh feel in the isolated house, a creature/person briefly spotted on the roof, rancid smells akin to spoilt meat and the wind whispering, repeating the same word over and over again ‘Wendigo‘. The story in Human Flesh is told through the written evidence that was collected in relation to the Freyston case. Comprising of text message conversations, transcripts of voice mail messages, transcripts of phone conversations, emails and blog posts written by Otha. There is also an excerpt from a website article about Swift Runner, an Indian from over a century ago who killed his entire family after hearing the wind whispering ‘Wendigo‘ at him. A diary entry from Fred detailing the plane crash, the aftermath and his survival also adds to the story too. Each piece of evidence offers a snapshot, a snippet of what is going on and helps to make the whole picture become clearer. Clausen packs a lot into the short page-count of Human Flesh. I really liked the use of the folklore and myth of the Wendigo and how it is incorporated into the story. The pacing is decent, you get a feel for the characters (as much as you can in a novella) and their personalities, the cold winter setting comes to life, the writing flows well and I loved the format in which the story is told. The use of the blog posts, emails and various transcripts work really well to keep you intrigued in the mystery that is unfolding through them. There’s no outright gore throughout Human Flesh but there are a creeping unease and a sense of solicitude for what will come to pass. I found it to be easy to read, at times chilling, always page-turning and overall, a highly enjoyable horror novella. It took me about an hour to read Human Flesh and it was a delightfully dark hour well spent.

    A good question is how to tell a horror story. The modern rage seems to make it 1st person so whatever happens to the narrator is all you see. The form works though it is limiting. 2nd person is more like a Sherlock Holmes story. 3rd person is the narrative overseeing and picking certain points in the plot keeping it moving forward.

The modern rage seems to make it 1st person so whatever happens to the narrator is all you see.

Then - there is the form chosen by Nick Clausen social media which is endemic to this generation. Combine that with the Wendigo, isolate the action in one region, throw in the innocents and heroes and you have the book Human Flesh. And it works. You have less of the cat jumping out of the closet scares and more hints of things to come spaced into the story. Some may argue you never get to know the characters in depth; it doesn't matter. The story moving forward with the characters blended in the form of social media is a way that absolutely works, provided you are not stuck into older methods. The use of the Wendigo is a frightening concept with the isolation, the cold, and old folklore. It's a welcome thing to see it done. To see it done with social media is a step to the future and maybe begin to understand how a modern generation thinks. Some may not like approach; I do. Experiment for gods' sake and the horror coming.

    *I was sent a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.* Nick Clausen had me at windego. There is so much good packed into such a few amount of pages, and I loved every second of it. The story style was fresh and unique in the sense that everything was told through evidence in an open crime case in the form of emails, voicemails, blogs, notes, etc. I can’t wait to read more of his work!

    It is amazing how much can be achieved in terms of storytelling with not really much writing. This book consists of text messages, blog posts, diary entries, transcripts of voicemails, copies of e-mails and interviews. The work behind the story, all the planning it must have taken to put the story together is impressive. And the effect is enormous. It gave me chills and I still feel it. Perfect Halloween book. Will write a full review soon.

    ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. This was a fast read, even for a short story. The writing is smooth and the plot keeps you interested throughout the whole book. The story is told entirely through blog posts, e-mails, texts and transcriptions. I had never read anything of this kind and it really surprised me how much I enjoyed it. I'm definitely picking up another one of his books this Halloween.

    This was the first book I have ever read that is written soley through texts, blogs, emails, phone records, etc.. It's very creative, and the story is good. Parts of it chilling (pun intended). If I knew at first this was written different than any book I had ever read, I probably would've passed on it. But I'm glad that I didn't. I don't wanna give away any spoilers, but this isn't the book to read if you want a happy ending

    Five stars for this horror – mystery novel. This isn’t what I’d usually read, but this story was captivating and gripping. Otha and her brother Huge visit their grandpa, and immediately Otha notices strange things about her gramps’ behaviour. She worries he might be getting dementia. Meanwhile, a woman, Esme, disappears. Otha tries to uncover the secrets behind her gramps’ attitude. The story is told through blog entries, texts, and transcripts of police reports. It’s a bit like the movie Clovenf Five stars for this horror – mystery novel. This isn’t what I’d usually read, but this story was captivating and gripping.

    Swords & Spectres

    Human Flesh is a great little punchy horror story that is quick, fun and easy to take in. At only 116 pages, it makes a nice change of pace from the bible-length epics told by Stephen King or some of the thick tomes of fantasy I have been reading. Sometimes you just need something short and fun, and ‘Human Flesh’ is certainly both. Human Flesh is told exclusively through ‘found evidence’ such as phone trasncripts, letters, text messages and, the largest chunks of all, blog posts.

At only 116 pages, it makes a nice change of pace from the bible-length epics told by Stephen King or some of the thick tomes of fantasy I have been reading. Sometimes you just need something short and fun, and ‘Human Flesh’ is certainly both. Human Flesh is told exclusively through ‘found evidence’ such as phone trasncripts, letters, text messages and, the largest chunks of all, blog posts. It’s a medium of storytelling that is getting more and more common (I have read a couple short stories told in the form of newspaper articles or letters and have recently listened to a podcast told in the form of found evidence). It’s an interesting and enjoyable way of reading a story (nothing ever feels like its too long-winded, that’s for sure) but it isn’t a method that will go down well with everyone. It certainly feels very specialist as far as reading tastes go. The story features a brother and sister who have gone to stay with their grandfather on his farm due to their skiing holiday getting cancelled. As soon as they arrive they pick up on the strange way their grandfather is acting and, along with a local named Martin, are concerned for the old man’s wellbeing. Things get stranger and stranger as the book goes on and leads into a very ‘thank God this isn’t happening to me scenario’. The story being told is an enjoyable one and, due to the quick nature of the writing, it keeps you turning the pages. My only negative is that, due to the medium the story is being told in, I just don’t think there was ever any potential to be truly scared/unnerved by the story. That is, however, the only negative I have to say about it. It’s still a very enjoyable, fast-paced read and I’m glad I picked it up. I’m not sure how long it will be free on the kindle store, so its well worth checking out.

The terrible truth I have never been able to face. I didn't escape the predator... I brought it home with me. I love few things more than the moment when you pick up a kindle unlimited title totally on a whim, with no major expectations to note, and end up finding yourself a brand new author to love. Human Flesh was such an incredible, creepy, dreadful little story and I couldn't get enough, but at the same time, its short length was perfect for the feelings it conveyed. Told through voicemail message transcripts, text messages, emails, blog posts, and interrogation notes, the formatting here is so unique and really helps attach you to these characters in an instant. On top of that, there's something so easy to relate to in the fear of uncertainty when you're a kid around a family member you don't know well — you're meant to trust and care for them, but can you help it if they're just acting a little weird? Bundle all of that together with a desolate, freezing wintry Maine setting and a small-knit community where everyone seems to know something you don't, and you've got a recipe for an atmosphere that puts you on edge from the start. As short as this is, there's not much that can be said without spoiling things, but I will say that, as someone who has always been terrified of legends of the wendigo and the lore surrounding it, this is one of my favorite executions of that storyline. It's well-researched and thoughtful, and has definitely piqued my interest in more of Clausen's work. I can't recommend Human Flesh highly enough and know this is the sort of short story I'll be reaching for again in the future.

The book itself is very short but fast paced, it was cleverly written and it is very evident that the author is a very talented and imaginative writer who has a fantastic way of gripping his reader’s attention. The only downside I have about this book is that I didn’t read in winter!

When they get there Otha notices her grandfather acting strange. Unfortunately, she never even suspected what was actually causing this strange behavior until it becomes too late and they have to face something more terrifying than they could ever imagine. The writing style of this book wasn't for me. It is written in a series of text messages, blog posts, e-mails and other medias. Despite my dislike for the style, I found the story had a really good flow. Once the truth starts unraveling, the story becomes extremely creepy. The characters were fine, they were fleshed out perfectly for what the story required. Overall, it wasn't a bad book at all. I think this would be a good read for fans of horror. Had the style of been different I think I would of enjoyed it a lot more. With that said, I do recommend this book for anyone looking for a quick and creepy read. It's definitely thrilling, scary and enjoyable. You can find this and all my other reviews at https://fourmoonreviews.blogspot.com/...

I enjoyed how the author brought the urban legend of windego come alive in this story connecting the past to present, legend to reality. The transcript style made this a quick read, half an hour at the maximum. It was barely 100 pages. I liked how the author tried to bring out the fear and macabre in the statements and blog posts and various calls and emails between the various characters. I felt the book tried too hard to be scary, I wasn't scared at all. A different style of writing along with bringing the myth to the forefront may make this an entertaining read for people who love horror. There was cannibalism in the story which might put off many. Be forewarned.

I have already purchased another of his stories They Come At Night because I can't wait to read more written by him. If you like horror, supernatural, or urban legends, purchase this. You will not be sorry.

    This was my first read from Nick Clausen. At first, I was caught off guard by the way the story is told through blog entries, emails, and texts, but after a while, I found that Nick's way of telling a story was even more intriguing than I initially expected. The book gripped me from the title right through the last written word. If you want a bone-chilling thriller set in the grips of winter, this is it. I don't think I'll ever hear the wind howl again without saying wendigo... Great Job Nick Cl This was my first read from Nick Clausen. At first, I was caught off guard by the way the story is told through blog entries, emails, and texts, but after a while, I found that Nick's way of telling a story was even more intriguing than I initially expected.

    First things first, I loved the cover, it's so promising, that was what got me attaracted to it in the first place. Kudos to whoever designed it. Loved how the story gradually build up and the way it was told was thoroughly enjoyable. All the characters were believable and I felt for all of them. The ending was kinda sad and gut wrenching but it was perfect and I couldn't imagine a better ending to the story.

    Great Story with an Awesome Bad Guy! I wasn't too thrilled with the format the story was written, but the story itself was awesome! The characters, the backstory, the creep factor, all of it was amazingly well written and entertaining. What's behind it all, I'm not giving anything away but, it's definitely worth reading and one of my favorites!

    When my friend brought this book to my attention, I was so excited to read it. There isn't many new books about Wendigos and I think they are scary AF. I liked the format used for this story. It's interesting and worked really well here. I'm glad Nick decided to include some of the folklore about these beings. I will definitely read more by this author.

    The cover really attracted me to the book plus not knowing anything about the myth of the man eating creature/spirit of a Wendigo. The story was built well and told through a series of emails, texts, blog entries and diary entries. It was a chilling and creepy tale with a well thought out story line that pulls you in and keeps you hooked.

    Wow. Excellent book! This was the first time reading this author. The book is a pretty fast read. Well written. A little creepy at times, and cannibalism. You can't go wrong with that combination! My only suggestion for the author... MORE GORE!! 😬 Looking forward to reading more by him. A definite recommend!!

    This story is not what I usually read myself. It's a horror short story written in the form of letters, blog entries, messages, and calls. Ths form made Human Flesh different from many other stories - which was a good thing. The story takes place in Canada, in winter, where some strange things begin to happen and no one knows what is going on. What is the truth? Will anyone reach it after all?
