“Madaket” is probably the closest I’ve seen Shepard get to a traditional horror story or weird tale, with the wind being an elemental of sorts. But it’s not just this element that makes the story tick, the juxtaposition of the stress the events have on the characters is amazing for their development.” ~ Mike’s Prattle on Lucius Shepard’s “How the Wind Spoke at Madaket”
