Pre-War Story: The Compass Rose

The Compass Rose

A Historic Novel
by Giga

“By simply straining I can see farther and farther back. Now I am going back through strange curves and angles. Angles and curves multiply about me. I perceive great segments of time through curves. There is curved time, and angular time. The beings that exist in angular time cannot enter curved time. […]
“The Hounds of Tindalos!” he muttered. “They can only reach us through angles. We must eliminate all angles from this room. I shall plaster up all of the corners, all of the crevices. We must make this room resemble the interior of a sphere.”.”
-The Hounds of Tindalos, 1929

It was a time of terror. Nightmarish Tindalos Hounds would materialize from darkened corners, using Tindalos Doorways to emerge from portals to another world.

Only one man knows how to stop the terror. One retired recluse – Daniel Humble.

Daniel is a 80-year-old retired psychiatrist from Madrid with declining health and a thirst for spells.

He knows that to stop the horrifying Tindalos Hounds eternal hunger, he must betray his adept apprentice, Sally Ball.

Searching for a second chance, he travels to Philadelphia where he attends a gruesome ritual, opening a door into another realm.

However, the end of the world approaches, and time is running out for Daniel. He is left with two options: stop the Tindalos Hounds in one hour, or allow the world to be consumed by an endless hunger.



“Never have there been more chilling monsters than Tindalos Hounds. I will never look at a shadowy corner again. “
– The Daily Tale
