    Summary

    Reese is an incubus that Finch summons by mistake.

    The wizard isn’t at all what John expected. He’s slight, with a beakish nose, pale eyes behind thick-rimmed glasses, and receding hair that stands up straight like it’s surprised. In his brown three-piece suit, he looks like a teacher at an old-fashioned boys’ school. But it isn’t his nebbishy appearance that throws John—it’s his expression. Most summoners greet him with a leer or a blush; this man looks, well, baffled.

    Summary

    “Carry him out with his feet facing the house,” is all he can say. He feels grey, washed out. Hollow. Like nothing. This is important, though, in ways he cannot yet name. The undertaker blinks, shifts from one foot to the other. Perhaps he believes in the old tales, of the dead finding their way back to their houses, spirits along the corpse roads. Perhaps he makes sure to cross running water on the way to the graveyard, guards against corpselights on the moors. Alex doesn’t care. “Please,” he says.

     

    A little festive ghost story, involving death, apples, bread, the Wild Hunt, iron nails and a pair of boots.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Total genius. A delightful story, funny and witty, and an evisceration of the media coverage of race & sexuality in celebrities. Also completely brilliant epistolary fiction using social media. AMAZING. (AND THE FORMATTING)
