A Spirited Evening and Other Stories
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 19th century ghost story, pulling you into a Victorian world where the line between reality and the supernatural is blurred.
