"In this hauntingly beautiful collection of nine reprinted and six original stories, Ludwigsen...issues an invitation to look past preconceived notions of self and ways of being, and to take a journey to the dark side of imagination." - Publishers Weekly, starred review "Ludwigsen's well-wrought, entertaining tales feel like a mashup of Ray Bradbury and Stephen King, and his evocative, whip-smart prose steeps readers in a realism that's mordantly funny and matter-of-fact but glimmering with whimsy and horror that leaks around the edges." - Kirkus Reviews, starred review
