Publisher's Summary

Girls and boys disappear; couples caught in the heat and suppressed rage of urban life are haunted by the ghosts of their own making; neighborhoods drift in the murky atmosphere of buried emotions, where the echoes of distrust and dissonance prove that something just isn't...right.These strange stories gather and weave themselves together into a wreath of memories, rife with an atmospheric and ominous creep redolent of Shirley Jackson.

This eerie collection illustrates the disconnect amongst people and the places they inhabit - the gap that allows the supernatural to flourish.

Critic Reviews

"A touch of magical realism, a whiff of the dark. Great emotional intensity is wrought in only a few pages. Domestic skirmishes, open-ended mysteries and always - in the midst of life - the delicate scent of corruption. Villegas's fresh voice promises a great future in speculative literature." (Ellen Datlow)
"Fans of creepy, nongory horror will appreciate this collection." (Publishers Weekly)
"Slippery, evocative, tasty. Elegantly and eloquently unsettling." (Ursula Pflug, author of After the Fires and Green Music)
