Publisher Description

A once-respected college professor and novelist, Dale Stewart has sabotaged his career and his marriage -- and now darkness is closing in on him. In the last hours of Halloween he has returned to the dying town of Elm Haven, his boyhood home, where he hopes to find peace in isolation. But moving into a long-deserted farmhouse on the far outskirts of town -- the one-time residence of a strange and brilliant friend who lost his young life in a grisly "accident" back in the terrible summer of 1960 -- is only the latest in his long succession of recent mistakes. Because Dale is not alone here. He has been followed to this house of shadows by private demons who are now twisting his reality into horrifying new forms. And a thick, blanketing early snow is starting to fall ...

Darren Wacker ,

Another wonderful story, masterfully told.

I have been a fan of Dan Simmons for many years, reading Carrion Comfort in my teens. Dan Simmons fiction never disappoints and A Winter's Haunting is another example of what a wonderful storyteller Mr. Simmons is. The characters are well crafted, the background carefully researched. it was a very enjoyable read. The depiction of a decaying idolization of Midwestern life in a small town rings very real throughout. All of us have our memories and our demons from our youth, Dan Simmons story helps emphasize that sometimes the bad is just as (if not more than)formative as the good.
