Rated 5 out of 5 by from Left me wanting more! Purchased and read this book in a night. Now re-reading in case I missed anything and I'm glad I am. First night I had nightmares about vampires coming to get me , the second about a bunch of witches! I have always been a big Susie Moloney fan and she doesn't disappoint with Things Withered. I realize these are short stories but I want/need more! I'd love to see these stories become a movie like Tales from the Crypt.

"Moloney is skilled at blending the expected with the original. The Dwelling shows a fine understanding of human nature." -THE GLOBE AND MAIL

"[A Dry Spell] is a rare piece of work . . . Reminiscent of early Stephen King . . . A story that is heartfelt and contains a touch of myth." -THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE
