It's Halloween month, so let's highlight some of my horror writings.
This week, my offering for you is THE CASTLE-TOWN TRAGEDY, my collection of Carnacki, the Ghost-Finder stories.
Even in the peace and plenty of the Edwardian era, malevolent denizens of the “Outer Circle” seek entrance to our world and the British Isles have no better defender than Thomas Carnacki, the Ghost-Finder!
In four original tales of William Hope Hodgson’s occult detective, Carnacki faces tortured spirits, powerful other-worldly entities and things that go bump in the night. But, armed with an array of scientific instruments, a vast knowledge of the occult, and fueled by a drive to dispel the mysteries and horrors of the world, Carnacki welcomes the challenge.
For over a century, the exploits of Carnacki the Ghost-Finder have delighted and thrilled fans of both mystery and ghost fiction and these stories are no exception!
