The Wind by Ray Bradbury shows that not all horror stories need a monster. He has personified wind. Took something that was somewhat abstract and gave it features.
The story is not told through the person who is being terrorized by the wind, but a friend to that man. It shows the wind as an animal stalking its prey. The hunted man gives his ideas on why the wind does what it does.
I get a sense of nostalgia when reading Ray Bradbury. I think of what it’s like in the fifties and sixties. In reality I’m reliving growing up in the eighties. Going home from school and watching My Favorite Martian with my father. Most of the shows after school and on Sunday mornings were shows from the sixties and seventies.
Bradbury captures well all the ways that the wind can scare us. Then he tells what happened to the terrorized man without mentioning what happened. Which is unique writing trick in itself.
The Wind was part of a collection called the October Country published in 1955. The Youtube video I listed to was provided by Tesla Wireless Radio.
