This novel about a supernatural family that calls an Illinois mansion home was reworked from short stories Ray Bradbury wrote early in his career. It concerns an adopted human member's efforts to save the memories of the clan of ghosts, mummies, and vampires. Michael Prichard invests his narration with the love given to it by the author, who found inspiration for this offbeat household in his own family, as Bradbury explains in the afterword. Prichard brings eloquent life to the unreal family and to the mansion, a character in itself. This eerie family is charming, notfrightening, but will haunt listeners' memories for ages to come.
