A dead boy stands in a dark farm-yard, staring at the lit windows of the farmhouse kitchen. An old man, living alone in a farmhouse surrounded by modern estates, sees spirits dancing on an ancient hillside. A bullied schoolgirl finds a protector -- at a price. A writer listens to the telling of a dream -- and can't sleep easily after. A poltergeist joins a couple in their home… An elderly couple are woken nightly by the return of their young neighbour -- who was murdered. Yet still she comes home late… An ancient wood emerges from the lamposts and walls of a city… And a spiritual medium is exposed as a trickster.
'This collection… has a depth of emotion that is at times disturbing.' Magpie, 1998
