Ghost Days is a short story anthology chronicling the adventures of Anna O’Brien, a woman living the rural wilds of turn of the century Appalachia. She comes upon a great tragedy, a great power, and begins a journey through the mythic landscape as a “conjure-woman.”
Ghost Days was written by journalist and author Asher Elbein. The book was successfully expanded to include 18 illustrations and brought to print via crowdfund. You can learn more about the development of the project here and can purchase a very pretty hardcover copy of the book here.
