In that special half-hour of twilight—the dark-thirty—there are stories to be told. Mesmerizing, suspenseful, and breathtakingly original, these tales make up a heart-stopping collection of lasting value, a book not quickly forgotten.
"...a stellar collection..."--School Library Journal, starred review
"These original, short and ghostly stories, which come with brief historical introductions placing them in the American South, are grand for reading aloud."--The New York Times Book Review
