MY SOUL TO KEEP. [New York]: HarperCollinsPublishers, . Octavo, two-part boards. First edition. Signed inscription by Due to "Theresa" dated 26 May 2001 on the title page. The author's second novel. "... an eerie epic that bears favorable comparison to [Anne Rice's] INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE." - Stephen King. "It's an education and a pleasure to read a book by a black writer about Africans and African Americans in all their human (and superhuman) variety, with not a stereotype, token, or obligatory sidekick in sight. These people live and breathe, and all, including the monsters, evoke the reader's sympathy." - Leila Loban, Necrofile: The Review of Horror Literature #28 (1998), p. 218. Stoker Award finalist for best novel. Due won the 2016 British Fantasy Award for the short story collection GHOST SUMMER.
