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)
