From the New York Times bestselling author of NOS4A2 and Horns comes this award-winning collection of short fiction.

Imogene is young, beautiful . . . and dead, waiting in the Rosebud Theater one afternoon in 1945. . . .

Francis was human once, but now he's an eight-foot-tall locust, and everyone in Calliphora will tremble when they hear him sing. . . .

John is locked in a basement stained with the blood of half a dozen murdered children, and an antique telephone, long since disconnected, rings at night with calls from the dead. . . .

Nolan knows but can never tell what really happened in the summer of '77, when his idiot savant younger brother built a vast cardboard fort with secret doors leading into other worlds. . . .

The past isn't dead. It isn't even past. . . .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lovely collection This is a great short story collection. I found it to be very eclectic & extremely detailed. Going into it, I was expecting your average ghost stories. None of these stories were average. Very goosebump inducing!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some haunting tales An interesting collection if tales; some sweet, some horrifying. I find it interesting that his prose is as easy to read and as captivating as is father's; and that they sometime share the same "shortcoming": I agree that the most important part is the journey, but it is still nice to get to someplace notable; which does not always happen here...
