Hey witches and warlocks, my next collection, Served Cold, is out on Tuesday, but pre-orders are up now. And pre-orders REALLY help, especially on Amazon AU where it’s easier to hit a bestseller list. I’m sure you’ll dig this collection of 16 chilling tales, 3 of them brand new for this book. If you’re keen to give it a go, please pre-order! (Amazon AU are doing free shipping on orders over $39, so if you get SERVED COLD and something else, you don’t pay postage. Or you could buy 2 copies of SERVED COLD and gift one to a friend, and get free shipping that way.) Are you ready to be served?
“In SERVED COLD Alan Baxter shows off his impressive versatility and range with a host of stories that mix old school terrors with very now concerns. At turns creepy and visceral, Baxter delivers the horror goods.” – Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Cabin at the End of the World
“Step into the ring with Alan Baxter, I dare you. He writes with the grace, precision, and swift brutality of a prizefighter. SERVED COLD is a stellar showcase for his talents. If you haven’t had the pleasure of reading him yet, start here!”
– Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of Ararat and The Pandora Room
“Alan Baxter is one of the best horror writers in the business, and this is an exceptional collection. You’ll think of these stories every time you’re alone and the shadows don’t behave, but by then, it’ll already be too late.” – Kealan Patrick Burke, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Turtle Boy, Kin, and Sour Candy
“SERVED COLD is a powerful collection of Alan Baxter’s writing at its best. These stories never shy from the darkness or the weird and yet are, at their core, deeply human. As readers, we identify with his characters even – or maybe especially – when we would rather not. Be it twisted desires or impossible choices, the harshest of consequences or the depths of despair, in these stories Baxter shines a light into the darker corners of what it means to be human.” – Joanne Anderton, award-winning author of The Bone Chime Song and Other Stories
