Ghostly Shadows

One of my most tortured (and read) books, an anthology of horror fiction, made it off the shelf again. The book contains nine short ghost stories and it will hopefully keep me company (and sane) until the next workshop begins. So, Alexander Pushkin, Daniel Defoe, Walter Scott, Alexandre Dumas, Charles Dickens, Bram Stoker, Prosper Mérimée, Lord Dunsany and Sheridan LeFanu, work your magic; I really need it.

  1. Αχ αυτα τα χιλιοβασανισμενα, ξεσκισμένα βιβλία. Καλό κουράγιο σε οτι κάνεις! <3 Btw ωραία πινελιά το χέρι σου και το "χέρι φάντασμα" στο επόμενο καρέ!

  2. Τα ζω τα πράγματά μου, δυστυχώς. Δεν τα προσέχω καθόλου:-/

    Επίσης έχω να σου πω ότι το κείμενο που υποτίθεται ότι διαβάζω (στις φωτογραφίες) έχει τίτλο "Διήγηση για το φάντασμα ενός χεριού" ;-)

  3. Sadly, it is an out-of-print book (dark / fantasy / horror fiction was never particularly popular in Greece but oh well).

  4. Sounds like a great collection. I have been very bad at reading anything lately, my mind is occupied elsewhere.

  5. I have always been more interested in practice than theory. Making reading a habit was a necessary evil for me (it does not always clear the mind and mental clutter is something I am not short of).
