About the book There exists in all of us a fascination for the supernatural. We find it as we sit tensely in a darkened theatre and let the images that flash by cause our hearts to race faster and faster, or as we listen to someone tell a ghost story. There?s nothing quite life reading a good ghost story though, and The Rupa Book of Spooky Encounters in chockfull of these. A collection of ghostly stories sure to send shivers down your spine, it includes tales from renowned storytellers, including E. Heron and H. Heron?s The Story of the Spaniards, Hammersmith, the protagonist of which is Flaxman low, the Sherlock Holmes of supernatural stories; Perceval Landon?s Thurnley Abbey; and Kipling?s The Phantom Rickshaw.
