Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The spirits of the dead have walked among our legends, myths, and stories since before recorded history. Ghostly visitations, hauntings, unquiet souls seeking the living, vengeful wraiths, the possibility of life beyond the grave that can somehow reach out and touch us are some of literature's most enduring icons. Now, in the twenty-first century, we are no less fascinated with phantoms than our cave-dwelling ancestors or our Victorian-age forebears. Thirty modern masters of fright and fantasy fill this anthology with shivers, chills, and spooky explorations of both sides of the veil. Be prepared to keep a light on all night

Review:

"Fall is the traditional time for ghost stories, and readers will find a wealth of unnatural shades and haunted places in this far-ranging anthology of 29 reprints and Stephen Graham Jones's grim original 'Uncle.' Richard Bowes's 'There's a Hole in the City' finds ghosts from New York City's past treading the streets after 9/11. 'A Soul in a Bottle' by Tim Powers is a tangled love story of a tricksy spirit looking to take advantage of the living, while John Shirley's 'Faces in Walls' reverses that premise with bloody results. Tale-tellers are as haunting as the stories they relate in Neil Gaiman's 'October in the Chair' and Barbara Roden's 'The Palace.' Spirits are bent on gruesome revenge in Sarah Monette's 'The Watcher in the Corners' and Nisi Shawl's 'Cruel Sistah.' The afterlife is nothing like you'd expect in 'Ancestor Money' by Maureen F. McHugh and 'Cell Call' by Marc Laidlaw. Guran delivers a diverse and solidly entertaining variety of spooks and chills. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
