The Restless Dead: Ten Original Stories of the Supernatural

By: Deborah Noyes

What's to be done when the dearly departed refuse to depart? In these ten stories, which take place in a variety of historical and contemporary settings, the dead refuse to stay buried. They return to haunt the living, deliver warnings, and settle scores from beyond the grave. This anthology features the work of some of today's most popular young adult authors, including Chris Wooding, Libba Bray, and M. T. Anderson. Includes a short author's note for each story.
