Wuthering: A vengeful take on Wuthering Heights in the violent world of Haxan

Mark here. The world of Haxan gives me a lot of room to retell stories and do variations. The short story “Wuthering” is such an example. I mean, how many settings lend themselves to a retelling of Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights? Well, in my opinion, Haxan does.

I had fun writing this story because it proved to me I could write, literally, anything in the world of Haxan about any topic whatsoever. That’s one reason I like Haxan. There’s a lot of built-in versatility other than your ordinary cliched western. Once again, I am not saying I am the first or the best writer to have done this with westerns. I merely argue I am having fun doing it!

If you are interested in reading the story please click on the link below. The story has been published by Argo Navis Publishing and it’s currently being offered on Kindle. I really do hope you like reading this story half as much as I enjoyed writing it. :)

 

As a neverending gale scours the land and the souls of men, a vengeful revenant comes to Haxan seeking the love she lost....

 

Product Description: Cathy Bell is a vengeful ghost seeking retribution. As Cathy night-walks the New Mexican desert in a jealous rage and prepares to strike an innocent family, Marshal John Marwood decides to confront the revenant — by risking his own life, while forever losing the only woman he will ever love.

“Hoover never hesitates to go deep and find what it means to be human.” —Richard Parks, fantasist & SF author

  1. Excellent conversion of the Wuthering Heights horrors inside the human heart into a Western setting! I like the sheriff as the hero and the evil woman as a ghost, not someone living in an attic!
