About this title
James P. Blaylock has set a new standard for the contemporary ghost story. The Washington Post called him "a master." Dean Koontz has hailed his writing as "first rate." A masterful blend of psychological insight and unearthly phenomena, The Rainy Season blurs the lines between the past and the present, the living and the dead, fantasy and reality . . . It's a gray, wet winter in southern California, and Phil Ainsworth is alone. The sudden death of his young wife has left him shaken, and he senses an eerie presence in the big old house he inherited from his mother. Then a late night phone call brings him more bad news: Phil's sister has died, leaving her ten-year-old daughter Betsy in his care. It seems like a bad time to bring a child into this unhappy house, but the child is the only family he has left. What he doesn't know is that Betsy is a very special child. She can sense powerful emotions from the past, hear voices of the dead, and see the uncanny powers closing around this house...
A haunting tale of death, and dreams, and desires...from the award-winning author who has become "a singular American fabulist" (William Gibson).
"With acrobatic grace, Blaylock walks the dividing line between fantasy and horror." -Publishers Weekly
"One of the most brilliant of the new generation of fabulist writers." -Washington Post Book World
