    Summary

    It starts with: "I don't."

    Or: Melanie is absolutely not talking about this. Or thinking about this. There is no this. (There is.)

    Summary

    Martin gathers blankets and pillows, the softest he can find; he arranges them on his couch as if making a nest and he doesn’t think about the small warm shape Jon’s body will leave behind him when he wakes, and he doesn’t think of Jon’s hair spread over cool white cotton like seaweed on an empty beach.

     

    *

    Jon has been evicted. Jon can't sleep. Jon can't let himself have nice things.

    Martin thinks he has a solution to all three problems.

    Summary

    Martin finds them eventually, tapered white wax, twenty or thirty of them beside a box of ancient (but dry) matches, and a little brass dish with a slot that just about fits the base of the candle. He feels like Scrooge, fitting the whole thing together, tucking a few more into his pocket before striking a match -

    Which immediately goes out.

    “Oh, fuck you,” Martin says into the murk.

    Again -

    And again, the fire vanishes. Quick and efficient as a breath. He shivers in the sudden cold.

    ***

    Martin Blackwood inherits an old country house, but there are more inhabitants than he first realises. When eventually the paranormal occurrences become too frequent and dangerous for him to ignore, he has to turn to a group of misfit ghost hunters for help.

    Summary

    “There’s something about the hallways, their wallpaper or their dimensions, that makes them seem a little smaller, a little narrower, than they should be. Like he’s making his way down the throat of some large creature, laying still but not asleep. Even the light that streams through the windows creates harsh shadows, transforming everyday objects into horrific and grotesque black and white shapes.
    Jon is being haunted; purposefully, and with intent. It sets his teeth on edge.”

    -

    A begrudging ghost hunter. A long-dead spirit. Love, loss, and hope in a haunted house.
