Also by this author: The Ghost Variations: One Hundred Stories

The author of the acclaimed novelThe Brief History of the Deadnow gives us one hundred funny, poignant, scary, and thought-provoking ghost stories that explore all aspects of the afterlife.

A spirit who appears in a law firm reliving the exact moment she lost her chance at love, a man haunted by the trees cut down to build his house, nefarious specters that snatch anyone who steps into the shadows in which they live, and parakeets that serve as mouthpieces for the dead--these are just a few of the characters Kevin Brockmeier presents in this extraordinary compendium of spectral emanations and their wildly various purposes in (after) life. These tales are by turns playful, chilling, and philosophical, paying homage to the genre while audaciously subverting expectations. The ghosts in these pages are certain to haunt you well after you've closed the book.
