Meet a guilt-ridden nurse who atones for her sins by joining her zombified patients in exile; a lone soldier standing guard on a desolate Arctic island against an invasion that may be all in his mind; a folksinger who tries to unionize Hell; and a private eye who only takes your case after you die. Visit a resettlement centre for refugees from ancient Rome; a lost country recreated by its last citizen on the Internet; and a restaurant where the owner's ghost lingers for one final party. Discover the inflationary effects of a dragon's hoard, the secret connection between Mark Twain and Frankenstein, and the magic power of blackberry jam--all in this debut collection of strange, funny, and bittersweet tales by acclaimed writer Matthew Johnson.
