Publisher's Summary

'It followed me home,' he said conversationally.
In a rural northern village, legend tells of a ghostly black dog that appears from the darkness before you die.
Shadow Moon has been on the road a while now, but he can't walk any farther tonight, not with the rain lashing down. Gratefully he heads home with a nice English couple, who offer a box room, hot whisky and local tales. But when the man collapses en route, Shadow realises that something about this place has been left untold. Something ancient, something within the very walls of the village. Something shadowing them all.

A shot size story from the world of American Gods

Passes the time nicely enough and it's great to meet shadow again. It's just that it's a little disappointing after all he's gone through in America Gods he is still a bit of a patsy. Then again isn't the mythical Thor too?
