Praise for Alan Baxter and Served Cold:

“Step into the ring with Alan Baxter, I dare you. He writes with the grace, precision, and swift brutality of a prizefighter. Served Cold is a stellar showcase for his talents. If you haven’t had the pleasure of reading him yet, start here!” — Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of Ararat and The Pandora Room

“In Served Cold Alan Baxter shows off his impressive versatility and range with a host of stories that mix old school terrors with very now concerns. At turns creepy and visceral, Baxter delivers the horror goods.” — Paul Tremblay, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Cabin at the End of the World

“Alan Baxter’s Served Cold is a feast for readers, who will push back from the table wanting more!” — John F.D. Taff, Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of The Fearing and The End in All Beginnings

Proudly presented by the multiple Bram Stoker Award-nominated independent publisher: Grey Matter Press. Where Dark Thoughts Thrive.
