Nathan Niigan Noodin Adler has written a terrifying tale about the mythological creature known as the Wiindigo, and what better way to honor his indigenous roots than to put the creature from stories he heard growing up, into a horror novel that will certainly draw readers from all walks of life.
WRIST tells the tale of the Wiindigo, a giant cannibal monster who doesn’t waste any time killing his first victim in Adler’s book. Adler was inspired by many contemporary horror writers, such as Anne Rice, who often uses mythical creatures in her works. And while he didn’t include any of the rather terrifying illustrations that inspired him in his book, he said that they helped him “realize the world a little more”.
