GENETICALLY MODIFIED TOMATOES ARE THE LEAST OF OUR WORRIES! These canines have picked up a human-like intelligence somehow. This short story is a frightful tale in the tradition of Hound of the Baskervilles and Murders in the Rue Morgue, but incorporating modern concerns that make it all the more scary—and believable.

THE GREATEST MIND SINCE SHERLOCK HOLMES. Dr. Peyton McKean and his friend Fin Morton investigate a series of murders in the desert canyons of eastern Washington State. Police suspect a Native American with shamanistic skills but the native man suspects an ancient, legendary creature that is half man and half coyote—Woyotl. The trail leads through the nuclear power reservation at Hanford and into the sagebrush wastelands beyond. And the answer to the mystery is more astonishing and terrifying than anyone suspects.
