The Starving

The Starving by Jon Dobbin

Something evil grows in the heart of Colorado. Bill Weston was a man of the West. He knew it - its land, its people, its stories. It was where he plied his trade, hunting men for money. His life wasn’t easy, but it was predictable. That all changed when he captured Faraway Sue and he was led on a trip through the Colorado forests


In those unknown wilds Weston was confronted by an ancient evil, bent and twisted by time and hunger. It would take everything in him to make it out alive, but what can a man do when faced with a creature out of myth and legend? Find a way to survive, or be changed forever.

“Brash and unrelenting from the first to the final page, you will not want to put this book down. Sharp dialogue; fascinating, deeply developed characters and scenes so crisp and definitive that you feel as though you, the reader, are right there with our cast of misfits, in that deep dark woods.”
— Nikki Little, winner of the June 2018 Kit Sora Flash Fiction Contest

I was on the edge of my chair while reading this novel. I just could not put down the book until I had it finished.

Dobbin’s debut full length is a chilling trek through a wintery wild west Colorado. The Starving combines the pulp swagger and splatter of Robert E. Howard with the atmospheric otherworldly chills of Stephen King in a suspenseful, tight read that moves like lightning.
