Cold Comforts

By Marianne Halbert

Haunted objects. Haunted places. Haunted people.

Creatures otherworldly and places where looming shadows carry dread to your door.

“If you’re a fan of literary horror, Cold Comforts ranks up there with the best of the genre. Halbert’s vivid descriptions, superbly defined characters, and imaginative plotting contribute to one of the best single-author collections I’ve read in years. It’s that good.” – Tony Tremblay, Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of The Moore House

A school bus stops at the home of an isolated family whose unusual children have a unique way to scare off their enemies
A vacationing couple discovers something deeper than their love resides within wine country
Objects in the attic of an old farmhouse come to life seeking retribution
A peculiar girl discovers she has a strange ability

These thirteen tales will take you from the farms and woods of the heartland, to prison and the south of France. Whether you’re crunching through the snow wondering what’s moving behind you, or sitting by a campfire listening to a tale of revenge, pull a blanket tight around your shoulders and be prepared for an impending chill to race down your spine.

All you’ll find are cold comforts here.
