Once held back the sea
My name lent to these lands
Wandered since the dawn of time
Wander lonely still
The unseen walker in the trees
Always close behind
The whisperer good rulers heed
Then drowned out by greed
have been, am still, will be
When the time is right
Fatherless, explorer, wisdom’s well
Poet for the fight
Spark and dart through time and night
Dealing fate some blows

I have a bad feeling about this
He said
She said
It said
Many voices

They did it anyway

Today’s trend
Seems to be
When all we really want
Is to come together
And hold hands

Softly fear creeps – more chilling than any scream.

Thirteen Tales of Ghosts

By Scott Bailey

A collection of short stories concerning ghosts. Some are traditional ghost stories in the tradition of M.R. James and Edgar Allan Poe. Other are not. Some scare, some are fun. Some play with the concept of a ghost. There are ghosts who are out for revenge and the living avenging the spirits that curse them.

Ideal for sitting around a campfire and late at night under the covers. Or maybe not if the stories themselves are any guide.

Check it out on Amazon and Smashwords and other online e-book retailers.

paperback version is now available for those who prefer the feel of the paper while huddling by the fire – on your own – in the dark – with that noise behind you……
