"Keep both hands on your pants, because Nicholson is about to scare them off."--JA Konrath/Jack Kilborn, author of Origin and Endurance
A collection of six supernatural stories by bestselling author Scott Nicholson, including "Homecoming," "The Three-Dollar Corpse" and "She Climbs a Winding Stair."
From the author of THE RED CHURCH, CREATIVE SPIRIT, DISINTEGRATION, DRUMMER BOY, and the collections FLOWERS, CURTAINS, and THE FIRST, these stories visit haunted islands, disturbed families, and forgotten pasts as Nicholson serves up chills, thrills, ghosts stories, and paranormal fantasy. Collected from the pages of Cemetery Dance Magazine, The Book of Dark Wisdom, Black Static, and more.
Exclusive introduction by Jonathan Maberry, author of THE DRAGON FACTORY and GHOST ROAD BLUES. The afterword explores the origins of the stories.
"Always surprises and always entertains."--Jonathan Maberry, The Dragon Factory
"Nicholson's Southern Gothic stories are beautiful, at times lyrical, and all the more eerie for it."--Steven Savile, Silver
"Lovecraft may have invented cosmic horror, but Nicholson brings it up close and personal."--Deborah Leblanc, Water Witch
"Scott Nicholson is a terrific writer. Like Stephen King, he has an eye and ear for the rhythms of rural America, and like King, he knows how to summon serious scares."--Bentley Little, His Father's Son
"He has moved into that literary shadowland between Neil Gaiman and Ray Bradbury."--Sharyn McCrumb, the Ballad novels
"Scott Nicholson writes with a mixture of H.P. Lovecraft, Manly Wade Wellman, and Clive Barker."--Kevin J. Anderson, Saga of the Seven Suns
