Colder 4 Cover

When I get sick and run a fever, I don’t mess around.  It’s not uncommon for me to run a fever of 101 to 102 on average.  Anything below that is no big deal.  But man, when I do run those higher fevers, my dreams are completely messed up.  Oh, sure, they start out pretty normal; like I’ll be walking through my house to go to the kitchen… The suddenly it’s not my house any more, and I can’t find the kitchen.  Then I’m being followed, and now I’m outside, so I start running, but I have no idea where I’m going and I’m not sure exactly why I’m running but I just can’t seem to stop and I’m not sure how long I’m going to be running but dammit I better keep running because something is back there, and I know I don’t like it but I’m not sure I’m going to like what’s just beyond this next turn either… and then I wake up.  That’s what reading Colder is like; a fever dream on the page.
