Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Walpurgisnacht, the night when the dead return for a time of partying and revelry, is an ancienct and somehow dignified legend. Like other "fantasies" of the past, it may one day become a reality, through laser-holograms of the departed, kept up to date by programming them with news of new developments. But traditions change as people change... especially some unusual individuals.

First published in the author's collection 'A Rhapsody in Amber'.
