Sometimes you see them. Sometimes you hear them. Sometimes they touch you. But you know they are there.

Ghosts, phantoms, spirits. Whatever you call them, however you think of them, they have haunted us since people first sat around the safety of a fire, sharing speculative stories of the afterlife and what might happen when we shuffle off this mortal coil, huddling closer to one another and to the light, fearful of those dark shadows closing in.

The four tales included in this collection explore ghosts that come back to this world for different reasons.

  • Phantom Mitch - Barry is plagued by a phantom itch on the left arm he lost in a tragic accident. But he is convinced that his phantom hand can also hold the hand of his dead wife.
  • Hereinafter Referred to as the Ghost - What if ghosts were hired actors cast in roles meant to inspire terror in the living?
  • Escape - When a distraught man holds his deceased daughter's favorite stuffed animal close, he swears he can see and hear her.
  • Being Needed - An elderly man is haunted by the eerie sound of a baby crying from an abandoned and boarded up house next door to the nursing home.
  • If you enjoy Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, or Amazing Stories style tales, then you'll love these eerily haunting tales from Mark Leslie.
