In 1946, the aswang hunters of Fear University are renowned throughout our secret world of fear and monsters. But I am not one of them. With my weak heart and frail physique, I will only ever be a professor at the university, relegated to teaching students about ’swangs—creatures that can change into wolf-like creatures and use fear like magic.
When legendary hunter Dermot Kelly comes to the university to execute a secret government mission, he not only turns my small world upside down, but his unit’s presence also makes everyone at the university nervous.
I decide that a Halloween party is just what we need to decompress. To take our minds off war. To loosen up and have a little fun.
But at Fear University, Halloween 1946 will forever be known as the night of the Tick Tock Massacre.
