The Bureau of Them

Cate Gardner

"You’re not the first to talk to your dead here", the vagrant said. The living always chase after their dead until they come upon their own. Formed from shadow and dust, ghosts inhabit the abandoned office building, angry at the world that denies them. When Katy sees her deceased boyfriend in the window of the derelict building, she finds a way in, hoping to be reunited. Instead, the dead ignore, the dead do not see; and only the monster that is Yarker Ryland has need of her there.


"....a rising purveyor of high literary strangeness..." -- Publishers Weekly "The Bureau of Them.... an in-depth and affecting examination of loss and sorrow" -- Angela Slatter "The Bureau of Them is not only an assured example of the best horror can offer, it is also an in-depth and affecting examination of loss..." -- Angela Slatter
