MacGregor's Hard Ice Cream And Gas by Daniel Macdonald
The MacGregor family patriarch has passed away, but the ground in their desolate prairie town is frozen solid, making it impossible to bury him. In a sudden desperate attempt to make things right, son Jack hijacks the body—coffin and all—up to his attic bedroom and holds his dead father hostage, keeping him cool with containers of their unique homemade ice cream until someone can find a quicker solution. Part Gothic, part comedy, it's a take of love, redemption, and keeping people warm.
