In the emotional short film Phantom Limb, a man finds himself haunted by the ghost of his partner's amputated arm, which grows more monstrous as his guilt looms.
A woodsman, a nest of mice, and a fox form their own ecosystem in the cozy short film. Tragedy strikes when that ecosystem breaks down, but this story still manages to end with a smile.
Jim Butcher's latest entry in the Dresden Files series, Ghost Story, feels like the gutsiest of his popular paranormal detective novels so far. Like its immediate predecessor, Changes, Ghost Story showcases Butcher's willingness to enact huge, sweeping changes to the status quo that he's established.
