From the Author
It's hard to believe; so hard, in fact, that had this incident not happened to me and been witnessed by my wife, I would most likely have dismissed it out of hand. Neither of us had seen, or felt, anything quite like it before, and all that we can say with respect to the matter is that we can come up with no satisfactory explanation. Some might attach labels such as 'supernatural,' 'haunting,' or 'ghost' to the phenomenon that we experienced, and I confess that I must begrudgingly concede that what occurred was suggestive of what is traditionally understood by these terms. As to the precise nature of this occurrence, I will say no more, for you will find it outlined within the pages of this story. It lies in your hands to disentangle the fact from the fiction, but what I can say, with much relief, is this: we are both okay.
If you should enjoy this, then take a look at three further ghost stories by H.E. Bulstrode: At Fall of Night and Epona (the second and third volumes in the 'Tales of the Uncanny' series), or Old Crotchet, a ghostly tale featuring a menacing Jacobean mannequin. Two anthologies are also available - Uncanny Tales and Anthology: Wry Out West - in both Kindle and paperback formats.
