A Spirited Evening and Other Stories: Six Victorian Inspired Tales of the Supernatural

“Did you ever hear tell of the soul of a living person walking, split asunder from its mortal body?”

Vengeful spirits, mysterious maladies and wondrous happenings that aren’t so easily explained—the world of A Spirited Evening harks back to the classic era of the ghost story, pulling you into a Victorian world where the line between reality and the supernatural is blurred.

This book contains six atmospheric and subtly creepy short stories:

A Most Unusual Disturbance – Algernon Hunter meets a young man who is being driven from his ancestral home. But what is the source of the strange music that haunts the old manor house each night?

Reflections on a Malady – Algernon Hunter finds himself involved in the case of an unusual malady. Thanks to a remarkable young woman, who shares his feelings of unease, he begins to see that sometimes there are forces stronger than death, and sometimes there are consequences.

The White Lady – Mr Palmer is intrigued by his friend's family legend. But who is the white lady and why should he fear her?

Three Knocks – One Christmas, a stranger comes to a remote country inn in the middle of a snow storm. Does he also bring with him the explanation for the mysterious, late-night knocking that troubles the inn?

A Spirited Evening – A sceptic gets more than he bargained for when the séance room threatens to give up a deadly secret.

The Darkness Within - A book purchased from a sale room opens up a world of trouble for Mr Worthington. But just what is the darkness within? And can Mr Worthington resist it?

Dim your lights, light a candle, and settle yourself in for A Spirited Evening…
