Stephen Graham Jones’ 2020 The Only Good Indians is a standalone horror novel.
Ricky, Lewis, Cass, and Gabe don’t talk about their last hunt together. The hunt in which they segued from triumphant success to horrific excess. Best never to mention their encounter with the elks. Easiest for Ricky, since he died under peculiar circumstances outside a North Dakota bar, but the others are pretty good at keeping mum as well.
Ten years later, the surviving trio discover that while they’re done with old business, old business is not done with them.
