Does a summer ghost story exist? We usually want to read something fast and gripping while sitting on the beach sipping our tropical drinks. No, ghost stories or haunted houses must be for the winter when we are all cold and draped under multiple layers of blankets and cursing the blizzard outside.
I am just about to finish up with a project that has been years in the making. My head is about to explode! The thought of looking at a word processor for one more minute is going to make me scream! Now it’s time for a good ole fashion ghost story (or haunted house or small town in Scotland where the townfolk are harboring a dark secret). One of my absolutely favorites is Shirley Jackson’s, The Haunting of Hill House. On a side note, you can also read her fantastic short story, “The Lottery,” online here.
So, bring it on. Any suggestions?
One of my favorite blogs is Multo (Ghost). “This is a blog about ghosts — literal, fictional, and metaphorical. It’s also a blog about whatever I want it to be about, so sometimes, the connection to ghosts may be a bit tenuous.”

I know I can be a bit behind the times, but I finally setup a Facebook page. Hopefully, this can be another “follow” option if you don’t want to receive emails.
