About the Book:

When Alex Wilson’s estranged uncle unexpectedly dies, Alex realizes he would do just about anything to make peace with the man who had raised him as his own.

He’d even reach out to the dead.

But things more dangerous than ghosts haunt his uncle’s broken down trailer and the nearly abandoned one-gas-station town of Fair Hill just beyond. Things that can devour the living and the dead alike, and are all too ready to answer his call.

Some parts of our past never really leave us. There are things that don’t know how to die.

These things linger.

From the author of the acclaimed The Eater of Gods, These Things Linger is a twisting and unforgiving novel of desperation, depression, heritage, and of other hungry, vicious things.

"This grimy but energetic horror novel from Franklin (The Eater of Gods) follows Alex Wilson as he deals with supernatural horrors in the small town of Fair Hill, Md. Readers seeking a ghoulish ghost story should take a look." - Publishers Weekly

“THESE THINGS LINGER impressed the hell out of me. It’s haunting, immersive, and it packs a surprising emotional punch. Dan Franklin is an important new voice in horror fiction.”
-Jonathan Janz, best selling author of MARLA and CHILDREN OF THE DARK

"Dan Franklin delivers a gut-wrenching, cautionary tale about dabbling in the occult and the curses that arise, both supernatural and generational. As the title suggests, this is one I won’t soon forget…or forgive." 
-Nick Roberts, best selling author of MEAN SPIRITED and THE EXORCIST'S HOUSE
