The Ghost Writer
Albert Brownlow is a collector of ghost stories, although he has never found one that has rung true. Until now.
In the village of Amblesford lies a house, known for miles around as a place of ill omen, where the stench of death hangs in the air and the shadow of the hanging tree can be seen by the light of the full moon. In to this fell place comes the ghost writer, an antiquarian and writer of tall tales, whose curiosity leads him to darker places than even his imagination can conjure…
This is a story of hubris, loneliness, and friendship. It is a story of dark deeds and darker souls that can haunt a place beyond all reason.
It is a story of death.
The Ghost Writer is a short novelette, after the style of M. R. James. Currently available via digital platforms, on Smashwords and Amazon’s Kindle store.
