LARGEST BLACK BEAR TRACKS ON RECORD

REWARD FOR KILL OR CAPTURE OF GREAT APPALACHIAN BEAR

There was still the sound—airy, like a long breath, only not that. I followed it until I came to an old phonograph with a record spinning on the turntable, but the needle was at the end, making only that rhythmic whispering sound. There was a collection of record albums, all neatly placed on a shelf. I was about to see which record had been playing when I heard a voice from a back corner of the room. "They don't know where he's buried."

I spun around, gripping the towel about my shoulders. It was Early Auden.
