Ghosts: New Book Alert!

Readers!  My 15 page scholarly essay about the spirits and other elements in F. G. Cottam’s wonderfully chilling ghost stories is now available at my amazon link.  It is a helpful read for anyone who loves ghost stories, as it offers a literary analysis of the ghostly events in these superb books, and will help you see other ghost stories from a broader perspective. 

F. G. Cottam is in my opinion the finest contemporary author in the ghost/horror genre – my work will reveal why!  Cottam has written several subsequent books, all marvelous.  If you aren’t familiar with his work, you’re in for a treat.  As many times as I’ve read and re-read his books, I only crack them open during daylight hours – preferably when not home alone!  His work is original, brilliantly well-written, and do not disappoint!

Ghosts: Another Haunted Road!

Readers, here’s another collection of ghosts from a haunted road.  We’ve read about other highway apparitions – what is it about roadways that invites ghosts?  Some would cite the ley line theory (briefly, lines of underground energy); others would add that many people die in auto accidents and that many roads are adjacent to cemeteries.  Whatever the reason, I bring you this gaggle of ghosts, via New England Folklore blog. Enjoy!  

I always imagine that Labor Day weekend will be warm and sunny. You know, it’s the end of summer so we should spend one last day at the beach or have a big picnic. 755 more words
