Last Summer at Mars Hillby Elizabeth Hand
Synopses & Reviews
Elizabeth Hand's loyal following will rejoice at the publication of this short story collection — her first ever. Lyrical, riveting, and often exhilarating, these stories showcase her vivid imagination as they give us a glimpse into the possible world of our near future. In the award-winning title story, she writes about Mars Hill, a faded resort on the rocky Maine coast inhabited by aging hippies, their rebellious children — and the elusive, shimmering spirits known as "the Golden Ones". Not everyone can see Them, but everyone can feel their healing presence, even fetching, skeptical young Moony Rising, who has come to say farewell to everything she ever loved. And to learn a secret more wondrous than love itself.

They are the reason Mars Hill exists. Not everyone can see Them, but everyone can feel their healing presence. Even fetching, skeptical, young Moony Rising, who has come to say farewell to everything she ever loved. And to learn a secret more wondrous than love itself...
