"Emily Bauer's narration of this contemporary ghost story is a poignant, pitch-perfect success...[Her] remarkable ability to shift between various Southern accents and intonations infuses the dialogue with emotional depth and insight." — AudioFile Magazine



When her sister Patty died, Jenna blamed herself. When Jenna died, she blamed herself for that, too. Unfortunately Jenna died too soon. Living or dead, every soul is promised a certain amount of time, and when Jenna passed she found a heavy debt of time in her record. Unwilling to simply steal that time from the living, Jenna earns every day she leeches with volunteer work at a suicide prevention hotline.

But something has come for the ghosts of New York, something beyond reason, beyond death, beyond hope; something that can bind ghosts to mirrors and make them do its bidding. Only Jenna stands in its way.

Dusk or Dark or Dawn or Day is a new standalone urban fantasy novella from New York Times bestselling author Seanan McGuire.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Emily Bauer’s narration of this contemporary ghost story is a poignant, pitch-perfect success…Bauer emphasizes Jenna’s earnest, honest humanity, making her isolation and vulnerability painfully clear, and tracing her growing self-assurance as she fights for her chance at redemption. Additionally, Bauer’s remarkable ability to shift between various Southern accents and intonations infuses the dialogue with emotional depth and insight, building empathy for each person in Jenna’s strange new world, and infusing this beautifully melancholy tale with defiant hope.”

  • A spooky, atmospheric love letter to New York and its shifting moods, skylines and people. Sophia McDougall, author of the Romanitas trilogy.
  • “McGuire’s latest novella is a breathtaking work, simultaneously exciting and emotionally resonant. Jenna is as real as she is unreal; she is endearing and magnetic even as she lacks corporeal form. Through her, the reader understands the nature of the world she inhabits, as well as the depths of her loneliness, even before Jenna herself does. Her small coterie of friends are written distinctly and vibrantly, each clearly the protagonist of their own life. Ultimately, the novella is about love and loss, about the extremes of grief, and about moving forward. It’s about living life fully, even after you’re already dead.”
