A woman haunted by a mysterious upside-down door...a meeting between a famous punk rocker and a voodoo priestess...a group of friends who willingly place themselves in the path of bullets that travel through time...Mark Morris's stories are wrapped in strange skin. Skin suffused with regret and grief and anger. Skin that twitches with bad dreams and appalling memories. Skin that is so thin it is unable to prevent the terrors of the past from breaking through...
