This adult horror
story is based on northeastern Native American beliefs about such magical creatures as skinwalkers and shapeshifters.
“Yah-ko” is Algonquian for “evil little men,”
goblin-like creatures that can shape-shift into animals. A Mohawk shaman
describes them as the spawn of Gan-Nos-Guah, the human flesh eater. The Yah-ko
are at war with the Nen-Us-Yoks, or “spirit dwarf people,” the spawn of Oh-ke,
the Earth Mother. Accurate research and a compelling story line make this book
an entertaining, scary read.
Jamie Sutliff has turned a number of his stories
into award-winning screenplays, including The
Devil Wind, which won a Laurel Leaf for best screenplay at Hollywood’s
Independent Film Festival; Yah-Ko,
which won the Silver Award at the International Independent Film Awards; and Antidote Man, a semifinalist at the
Hollywood Circus Road Film Festival. Download and start listening now!
