Oooh, I LOVE ghost stories. I'm adding that one to my mental TBR. Thanks Sonja Marie!

Have you read The Woman in Black by Susan Hill, EC? I think it's a brilliant and scary ghost story..... well, it scared me! :eek: The Man in the Picture is very good, too.

You're welcome. I love true ghost stories. I don't really care for fictional ones all that much.

Yes, and the Mist in the Mirror. I think I've read just about every ghost story I can lay my hands on. They're one of my comfort reads if you like. I think that's why I'm so fond of Stephen King's The Shining - it might cross over into horror but it's a suspenseful ghost story too.
Sonja Marie, I enjoy true ones too. I've never seen one myself but I know a lot of people who have, including my dh.Even without visuals, I've had plenty of experiences in the last couple of years and certainly felt energies and been very aware of them on occasion.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

I'm reading 'A Place Beyond courage'. Thought I'd try one of your more recent works, EC. So far, I'm enjoying it! (Actually, I'm listening to it. Right now I have to do a lot of driving between my place and my Mom's. The narrator is good, a gravelly-voiced fellow, but he makes the first wife positively squeaky.)

She was! ;)
Looking back now, I feel sorry for her, although at the time of writing I quite often thought 'Oh for goodness sake woman!' :rolleyes:
