This is an essential collection from one of our best.’ ~ Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Cabin at the End of the World
‘Angela has a rare talent for drawing the reader into her world, with a lyrical, almost fairytale quality to her writing that also shows a sardonic wit to delight the reader. This collection showcases some of her best stories—you need to read it.’ ~ Marie O’Regan, author of Bury Them Deep, editor of Phantoms and The Mammoth Book of Ghost Stories by Women
‘Angela Slatter’s prose is both eloquent and elegant, which is no mean feat.

This book is a gem and you should treasure it as such.’ ~ Paul Kane, bestselling and award-winning author of Sherlock Holmes and the Servants of Hell, Monsters, and Before
