Product DescriptionTheres nothing like a good ghost story, and the Irish have traditionally excelled at them. The specters which haunt these Irish ghost stories include massacred Spanish sailors, a silver-robed woman who plies her guests with poison, a mutilated peddler, a benign but icy embrace, and the devil himself. Twelve Irish Ghost Stories draws from the rich and varied literary tradition of a culture long enchanted by things supernatural, a land where ghosts and ghost-seers are common.
Energetically inventive, and infused with a relish of the supernatural, these classic ghost stories still retain their original power to unsettle and surprise. Twelve Irish Ghost Stories is one chilling anthology no fan of the genre will want to be without.
