    Book Description: 


    Dead.

    Some evils are so great that they transcend death. In Brandon Massey’s "The Patriarch," a young writer travels to the hushed backwoods of Mississippi, where dangerous secrets surface as a generations-old feud comes to bone-chilling new life. . .

    Buried.

    The souls of the mistreated always find a way to be heard. In L.A. Banks’s "Ev’ry Shut Eye Ain’t Sleep," violent visions haunt a man—until he’s handed an opportunity to right the wrongs of the past and prevent unspeakable acts from occurring once again. . .

    Forgotten.

    When horrors are covered up and lost, our ancestors must find a way—even in death—to tell their tales. In Tananarive Due’s "Ghost Summer," ancestors haunt the nights of two children. And when a grisly discovery is made, these ancestors will make their mark on both the dead and the living. . .

    "Massey ventures into areas unexplored by most other black novelists. The result is artful and stunning." —Chicago Tribune

    "Tananarive Due is creating classics." —Tina McElroy Ansa

    "Banks’s writing is lush and detailed, fully bringing her characters to life (or unlife), weaving a complex world of Good vs. Evil with its own intricate hierarchy." —Fangoria Magazine
