Summary
"In her debut collection of short fiction, Due takes us to Gracetown, a small Florida town that has both literal and figurative ghost; into future scenarios that seem all too real; and provides empathetic portraits of those whose lives are touched by Otherness. Featuring an award-winning novella and fifteen stories" --

Summary
In this collection of 15 short stories and a novella, award-winning author Tananarive Due portrays human depravity in the guise of monstrous creatures. With a liberal dollop of ghosts (including the story titled "Summer"), occasional zombies ("Patient Zero" and "Danger World"), werewolves ("Afternoon"), and glimpses into the future, Due expertly reveals what lies under the surface. With an introduction by Nalo Hopkinson and an afterword by Steven Barnes, Ghost Summer offers a terrifying sampler of gourmet treats. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
