Sir James, as he likes to be called, is a British acquisition specialist and assassin with a technologically advanced rifle the size of his inflated ego. And, he's on a mission to the Wild West, to capture a Wendigo, a flesh-eating creature of legend that can also control men's minds. With his two Cree guides, Sir James ventures into the frozen wilderness...
There's a lot going on in this short story, almost too much for the brief 19 pages here. The mysterious group that Sir James works for is ample territory for its own story, as is the origin of James' rifle. The tale of the First Little Indian, Pannoowau, and his childhood survival of his own Wendigo, is another. The story is subtitled "A Western Cthulhu Mythos Short Story", yet I couldn't figure out how this story fit in to the cosmic horrors that are the Great Old Ones. Maybe it's my own limitations. Regardless, this was a good read, enjoyable and easy to swallow. Pun intended.
