A collection of six ghost and horror stories engineered for the information age: a computer simulation has a visitor, a killer App does just that, a cloud sucks the fun out of us, a dead phone rings, a lucky day is anything but, and a computer technician joins the fight to defeat alien hordes. The first five are new stories; the sixth is an extended version of the Ms Fixit flash fiction story.
In March 2011, another UK author challenged Peter Salisbury to write outside his usual science fiction comfort zone and produce at least one ghost/horror story. This collection is the result, in which some readers may believe that technology refused to fully relinquish its grip on the author, despite his struggle to wriggle free.
