This summer I started to read Stephen King's books (earlier I've mostly seen the movies). I found two of my favorites to be Pet Sematary and The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon. The prohibited woodlands play big part on both of the books, and one also names 'wendigo' while other hints for the creature in the storyline. Great, great books indeed. The wendigo character made a big impression on me on being so completely bestial and uncontrollable, and still somehow very natural. Here's my version of him.
