The Path

By Scott Bailey © 2017

It’s exhausting

And you dropped the map
But there’s no option
But to go on

Hedgehogs wander by

We are told

Find the path
Through those
And you will be sorted

Or go mad

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.
