California, a land of mystery, a land of magic. Assassins walk the streets alongside angels. Romance blossoms in the City by the Bay, while death stalks a Los Angeles science fiction convention. In this collection, find the first story featuring Rusch’s popular character Spade, “Stomping Mad,” as well as four standalone tales: “Ghosts,” “The Perfect Man,” “Monuments To The Dead,” and “Spirit Guides.”

“…the always impressive Rusch can successfully tackle any genre she sets her sights on.”

“Like early Ray Bradbury, Rusch has the ability to switch on a universal dark.”
