Steven Utley, one of the most promising writers of the seventies, quit at the end of the decade, disillusioned with science fiction. He spent the eighties pursuing other interests, including writing and drawing comic strips and collecting swing-era music. He returned to writing in the late eighties, writing stories unique and powerful, regardless of genre: western, horror, science fiction, history, love, mystery.
Ghost Seas is a collection of fourteen stories from the twenty-five year career of an extremely talented writer.
