G is for Ghosts

G is for Ghosts!

So, I actually did my last year’s G A to Z post on Ghosts, and I’m doing another one this year!

I’ve mentioned briefly (and will mention again tomorrow =3) that I’ve had a short story accepted into an anthology called Hauntings. And, I’m excited to say I’ve actually had another short story accepted into a different anthology, although I can’t really talk about it yet. However, what I can say is that, turns out, both of these two stories have something to do with ghosts!

Okay, the first anthology isn’t much of a stretch, but the other anthology doesn’t automatically bring ghosts to mind. And the two stories themselves are quite different in subject and tone. In fact, I didn’t even realize they were both ghost-related until my husband pointed it out!

But it’s not terribly surprising. I’ve mentioned before that I love ghost stories, and I’m really excited to have my first published stories related to ghosts as well!

Do you like ghost stories? If so, what are your favourites? Personally, I love many of the tales of Edgar Allan Poe, which aren’t really “ghost” stories, but are certainly stories of people being haunted. My all-time favourite is “The Masque of the Red Death”. In a more classic sense, I think my favourite full-on ghost story is probably Susan Hill’s The Woman in Black. And I have to give childhood credit to the Are You Afraid of the Dark episode “The Tale of the Prom Queen”, which always stuck with me.
