I have always been one of those individuals that had a fascination with ghosts, and have even had several experiences as a child that have stayed with me throughout my entire life, just as clear and sharp as they were the day that they happened.
Rayne Hall pulls together an exciting collection of stories from various authors from around the world to bring you Haunted: Ten Tales of Ghosts for your ghostly reading pleasure.
“Ten authors spin creepy yarns, each with a different writing style and a different way of telling a story. Allow these fantasy and horror stories to haunt you, and see which story resonates most with you.”
My particular favorite from this series, and most heart-wrenching to me because it reminds me of my grandparents, is the first in this series, Ghosts Can Bleed in which Maurice cannot understand why his wife, Doreen, won’t accept that he’s dead. Funny yet sad at the same time, the story leaves you wondering if Maurice will ever be able to face his reality.
