Small Spaces Quartet

Set in contemporary Vermont, the Small Spaces Quartet is the story of three friends who face a series of horrifying games and schemes dreamed up by an ancient evil called the Smiling Man. Each book is attached to a season. We begin in the fall with Small Spaces, continue into a haunted winter with Dead Voices, move into a monstrous spring with Dark Waters and finally a terrifying summer with Empty Smiles.

Wherever you go in this big, gorgeous, hideous world, there's always a ghost story waiting for you
