Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
A collection of short stories from three talented authors exploring ghosts and hauntings by drawing upon African and African-American ancestral myths and beliefs. In Brandon Massey's The Patriarch' a young writer travels to the hushed backwoods of Mississippi, where dangerous secrets surface. In L.A. Banks' 'Ev'ry Shut Eye Ain't Sleep' a man is haunted by violent visions - until he is given the chance to right the wrongs of the past. Finally, in Due's 'Ghost Summer', ancestors haunt the nights of two children - making a mark on both the dead and the living.'
