by R. J. Hore

As usual, Randy is behind in Bertha's wages. When she begs him to help her younger brother in a northern mining town, it's an offset opportunity. Just because there are mysterious goings-on in Basalt Ville, and rumors that Hell Hounds have been seen, there's no reason for worry. He tackles the job with his usual dramatic flair.

The body count piles up, with hounds baying, and even stranger things rising out of the ground, making for an almost-typical few days outside the office.
