The Giving of Things Cold & Cursed is a haunting tale by critically acclaimed horror author Terry M. West. Baker Johnson is a flawed parapsychologist in the year 1925. After the death of Richard Johnson, Baker inherits his uncle's estate and moves into the legendary psychic researcher's home. But he soon discovers that the Black Room of the property, the place where haunted items are safely contained, has been emptied. This is a brand-new and never-before-published short story.
Included is a lengthy preview of a brand-new Baker Johnson story, "Servant of the Red Quill", which is coming soon!
"(The Giving of Things Cold & Cursed is) beautifully written, superbly edited and trying to explain the incredible depth of aesthetic in this particular short is like trying to explain the virtues of a well aged Scotch vs moonshine..." (The Horror Nation)

Reminiscent of Poe
West keeps surprising me with his versatility. I have been following his work for some time now and he never disappoints. From gore to period horror fiction he masterly creates his prose. This short story set in the year 1925 is reminiscent of Poe’s work. Baker Johnson is to inherit a room full of haunted objects. Each object weaves its own distinct and terrifying consequence. Narrator Jason Mills brings The Giving Of Things Cold & Cursed to life keeping the voice of each character distinct and interesting.
