"Apartment 239 is Alley's best work yet. This compelling genre-mash-up is a page-turner of the cinematic sort - a splendid mixture of lovable and despicable characters, horrific and heartfelt scenes, and humorous and witty dialogue. Highly recommended!" —Jeremy Hepler, Bram Stoker-nominated author of Sunray Alice.
“Elford Alley is a rare horror writer who can encompass humor, tenderness, and the creepy lurking of our haunted spaces. APARTMENT 239 is book that combines the horrific melancholy of communicating with the dead while also celebrating the absurdity of it. Definitely a spiritual successor to works like THE FRIGHTENERS or IDLE HANDS.” — Kyle Winkler, author of Boris Says the Words
Monsters. Mayhem. Minimum Wage.
Marble Springs is a town with a hundred missing persons cases, a lake harboring a blood-thirsty monster, and a second-generation serial killer on the loose. When undervalued city employee Abe Barret begins to see the dead, he discovers the loss of his family is linked to these unsolved disappearances, and he only has days to solve it before his time is up. There are a lot of ways you can go in Marble Springs, and none of them are pleasant.
