Clouds like scratches on the moon
Mouse darts warily

Tantalising thighs
Whispering wiles
Zipped zones

Thirteen Tales of Ghosts

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. Others are not. Some scare, some are fun.
