Misadventures of a Cryptid Hunter

I didn’t sign up for this. I never wanted to be a cryptid hunter. I didn’t even believe in cryptids. I always thought they were the stuff of bedtime stories to keep kids quiet and in bed, scared out of their wits, when mom and dad wanted some quality time together.
I was perfectly happy in my boring job as a park ranger. (Not really) But fate had other ideas. When I came face to face with a Bigfoot… everything changed.
Some people are born to greatness, others have it thrust upon them. Then there are still others who trip, fall down a hill backwards, and land face first in a big stinky, steaming, pile of greatness.
I was the latter.
This is the story of that steaming pile that was my life as a cryptid hunter.

The Revenants

They came for ghosts, but found something much more evil. It’s the summer after graduation, and eighteen-year-old Will wants one last blast with his friends. When they convince him to sneak onto the grounds of an abandoned and (allegedly) haunted chemical plant, he thinks the worst they’ll find is a few rusty nails. But when the sun sets, something else emerges from the nearby cemetery. Corpses brought to life by the chemical spill that shut the plant down set out to consume the living, regenerating — and getting stronger — with each kill. Now, trapped within the thick woods surrounding the plant, Will and his friends must escape the living dead…or become part of them.

I used to be a regular kid. I had a best friend and we hung out all the time. That was before everything happened. That was before… The Monster.
