Rate this:
For a decade, writers have assembled at the misty, mysterious Oregon coast to write ghost stories.The agenda is simple: Write a ghost story during the weekend. Naturally, the topic of conversation runs to the universal mysteries, as well as to the confession of fears. Each writer must be creative on demand, and invoke those thoughts, feelings, speculations and spirits that combine to make a good story. And in the end -- though many refuse to believe it upon arrival -- everybody completes a ghost story by the end of the weekend. And every writer there learns something new about his/herself in the process.In this anthology of 20 stories, you will read what scares these writers. There is something in these pages for everybody, from the retooled urban legend via the sweetly sentimental to the horrific. We have haunted castles, haunted mirrors, haunted boathouses, haunted houses, haunted train tracks, haunted woods, and to be sure, haunted graveyards.So light a candle, cozy down and get ready to explore the depths of your own ideas of death, and beyond.
