Thurnley Abbey

And speaking of Halloween reading, I'd like to recommend a particularly creepy ghost story to you. This one was published in 1908. It's called Thurnley Abbey and it's author is Perceval Landon. For reasons I cannot entirely explain, this one really creeped me out. Perhaps it's the slow build up. Perhaps the nature of the haunting itself. In some ways it seems more like a 'real' ghost story than a lot of the fiction of this kind. For whatever reasons, I liked it a lot and got a nice little chill out of it. It's in public domain so you can read it in PDF format here.

Just make sure you're not home alone.
