    Great story

    I was lucky enough to stumble upon this book while prowling around the nookstore for new horror. The prose is intelligent and the charactors believable. A perfectly woven tale of terror, grief, and humility. A literary treat.

    Hauntingly Poignant...

    Kealan Patrick Burke writes about love and loss, and what haunts those who are left behind. Finely crafted short story, from one of the sharpest talents in modern horror today.
