Brhel and Sullivan have consistently made some solid, good-to-great nostalgia pieces in the weird/horror realm, and Carol for a Haunted Man may be their best yet. A read designed to harken back to the holiday stories of Charles Dickens, this novella is a really engaging, strange tale that both grabs the dark side of writing as well as gives a cautionary tone for dwelling too much on things that we can no longer control. The story structure, the characters, the surprises, they’re all put together in a way we haven’t seen from this team yet, and the longer format (compared to their collections of short stories) really lends itself to giving some breathing room to the overall plot.

This is one you shouldn’t miss, especially if you’re looking for an unsettling read during the holidays.
