"Fiercely frightening yet hauntingly beautiful."--Tess Gerritsen, author of The Silent Girl
"A sinful pleasure."--Katherine Dunn, author of Geek Love
No one is innocent, no one unexamined in award-winner Elizabeth Hand's new collection. From the summer isles to the mysterious people next door all the way to the odd guy one cubicle over, Hand teases apart the dark strangenesses of everyday life to show us the impossibilities, broken dreams, and improbable dreams that surely can never come true.
Elizabeth Hand's novels include Shirley Jackson Award-winner Generation Loss, Mortal Love, and Available Dark.
