In the award-winning title story, the narrator recounts the events of an expedition to the Belgian Congo in 1928 to collect gorillas for the Louisville Museum of Natural History. A mother invents a fairy-tale world for her son in Halfway People. Twin sisters backpacking through Europe receive a mysterious invitation. A rebellious teenager is sent to a brutal reform school hidden away in paradise. A young woman inherits the family submarine.

In The Dark, a researcher tracking plague outbreaks finds himself in the Viet Cong tunnels of Vietnam. A mystery writer visits an archaeological dig in Egypt and sets a curse in motion. In two stories, Booths Ghost and Standing Room Only, Fowler explores the circumstances of Lincolns assassination from the perspectives of John Wilkes Booths family and friends. Fowler, perhaps best known for her novels, is a master of the short story form: the secret history, the account of first contact, the murderous, ordinary tensions of family life.

She draws on fairy tales, historical narratives, and war reportage, measuring the human capacities for hope and despair, brutality and kindness in the fantastic tradition of writers such as Shirley Jackson, T. H. White, Karen Russell, and Ursula K. Le Guin.Stories in this collection have received the Shirley Jackson Award and two Nebula Awards.
