This anthology revitalises the stale gothic romance genre with stories span-ning across centuries and the world. A Sioux woman returns from the grave seeking true love. A young boy and his ghostly boyfriend dodge American soldiers and landmines in 1970s Vi-etnam. A young mother in slavery faces demons on the eve of liberation in 1800s Jamaica. A Brazilian writer-in-exile discovers his sanctuary's dark secrets - and the burning touch of a ghostly lord.
