But is the house truly haunted?

Of course the house is haunted.

Button House has stood for centuries, digging its roots and its rot deeper and deeper, consuming all who approach: twin brothers, a child bride, an innocent baby, four young factory workers.

And then came Rose Billings, who had an affinity with the house like no other. Rose, who could hear the house and the pleas of its many ghosts. Rose, who would attempt to solve the mysteries of Button House, or die trying.

Reviews Forย A Voice Calling

Christopher Barzak is a master of subtle hauntings. I’m not sure how he managed to make this story both charming and very creepy, but I can still feel the chill up my spine.

Theodora Goss, author ofย The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughterย 

Nobody writes ghost stories like Christopher Barzak. A Voice Calling is a chilling portrait of a demanding house, its loving inhabitants, and a town that takes a deep and not altogether friendly interest in everything that happens there. Itโ€™s a remarkable storyโ€”melancholy, terrifying, and beautifully written. I loved it.

Delia Sherman, author ofย The Freedom Maze.

Gorgeously wrought, and profoundly moving, horror

Maria Haskins, author ofย Girls & Wolves & Other Dark Gems
