    A 300-year-old story collector enlists the help of the computer hacker next door to save her dying sister. A half-resurrected cleanup man for Death’s sprawling bureaucracy faces a phantom pachyderm, doll-collecting sorceresses, and his own ghoulish bosses.

    Carlos Delacruz is one of the New York Council of the Dead's most unusual agents - an inbetweener, partially resurrected from a death he barely recalls suffering, after a life that’s missing from his memory. He thinks he is one of a kind - until he encounters other entities walking the fine line between life and death. One inbetweener is a sorcerer. He's summoned a horde of implike ngks capable of eliminating spirits, and they’re spreading through the city like a plague.

But as a mixed-race kid, Older was torn between fandom for Lovecraft's stories, and resentment over the way people of color and immigrants were so often portrayed. In this episode, Older introduces us to his Brooklyn neighborhood--the setting for Half-Resurrection Blues, and a community of paranormal fans who are reinventing the genre.
