Valentines Day is celebrated with a Journey into the Kingdom, winner of the World Fantasy Award, where a young, lonely girl falls in love with a ghost. A May wedding in The Machine is a tale of innocence lost and terrible revenge, a story not for the faint of heart.

Even if you lost a son and gain a wolf, its still Fathers Day in Dont Ask--just be sure you fill the water bowl!

When the heat is summer is upon us, its best to leave the garden fairies alone, or at least not torture them, or suffer the fate of the little girl in Was She Wicked? Was She Good? A surreal Halloween story, You Have Never Been Here, leaves one wondering if it was all a dream, in a tight, tension-filled mystery.

A Vietnam veteran is featured for Veterans Day, in War is Beautiful. Tortured by his term in Vietnam, a solder befriends a local Vietnamese girl--or is she a ghost? The collection ends with a Halloween to Christmas tale, The Christmas Witch, where all the children of a town collect bones, and the darker side of childhood is told.These eleven tales will lead to eerie, mysterious, and downright creepy visions of little girls and their secret thoughts, imaginations, and capabilities.
