"[The] prose is crisp and highly sensory, building tension within each fable with the skill of a veteran storyteller...A finely constructed linked story collection full of Indigenous American ghosts and goblins." (Kirkus Reviews)
Southern Appalachia, 1900. Anna O'Brien had a home, a husband, and a future. Now, cast out by tragedy and strange magic, she wanders the countryside on her wooden leg: living by her wits, settling spirits for her work, and never, ever looking back.
There are plenty of horrors ahead. Ancient things stir in the woods, awakened by the belching locomotives and logging cuts. Dark things yearn for a terrible savior on a remote hill. A bank heist runs afoul of an undead curse. Two women find themselves tormented by a relentless suitor. An omen of death dogs Anna's heels. And deep in the land beneath mountains, a forgotten god offers a difficult gift.
Anna O'Brien's got a lot to learn. If she's going to survive, she'd better learn fast...
A collection of linked short stories illustrated by concept artist Tiffany Turrill, Ghost Days is road trip through a world on the brink of massive upheaval and ecological collapse, a world of old traditions and remnant powers.
