Publisher's Summary

Bobby Conroy's made a lot of mistakes - the biggest, perhaps, when he let Harriet Rutherford slip away from him. And now the two of them � and Harriet's young son � are all extras on the set of Dawn of the Dead, and Bobby has the chance to see what could have been.

Critic Reviews

"Most of the stories display the unself-conscious dash that made Hill's novel an intelligent pleasure....Not just for ghost addicts." ( Kirkus Reviews)

Bobby Conroy

I truly believe Joe is even better than his father when it comes to the short stories. I haven't come across one I haven't enjoyed yet.

I loved this story!

This is straight forward story telling at its best. I loved everything about this story.
It's oddly hopeful.
