This anthology edited by Chad Eagleton certainly delivers on that premise.

Review: "Windigo Island: A Novel" by William Kent Krueger

Life in a Haunted House

We never get any trick-or-treaters. I can tell myself that it’s because we’re the only house on a dead-end street and surely, being off the beaten path is part of the problem. But if I’m to be completely honest, it’s because I know that little kids are afraid of our home.

Yes, we live in THAT…
