The Downside Ghosts series has been called "gripping and brilliant," "a must-read," and "one of the best paranormal fantasy series available." Now all four previously published short stories set in this world are collected in one place, plus one new, never-before-seen novella. In this volume are:
RICK THE BRAVE (from HOME IMPROVEMENT: UNDEAD EDITION)
HOME (originally published on Heroes & Heartbreakers)
CLOSE TO YOU (originally published on Heroes & Heartbreakers)
KEEPING IT CLOSE (web original)

Each story is presented in its entirety, with a note on its conception and writing. If you're a Downside fan, this is a must-have for your collection.
Stacia Kane has been a phone psychic, a customer service representative, a bartender, and a movie theater usher, and she thinks that writing is more fun than all of them combined. She lives in England with her husband and their two little girls.
The Downside Ghosts :: Series
In Chess Putnam’s world, ghosts are real, and — what’s worse — they’re dangerous. Lucky for her, she has the ability to hunt and banish them, which she puts to good use in her job as a debunker. People who try to get government money by claiming they’ve got a ghost need to go through Chess first. It’s up to her to decide whether they’re committing fraud — and she rarely makes mistakes. Dark, sexy, and always suspenseful, the Downside Ghosts series chronicles Chess’s adventures in a frightening, fascinating world wholly unlike our own.
