Ghostly: A Collection of Ghost Stories
Edited, Introduced and Illustrated by Audrey Niffenegger
Haunted houses, spectral chills, and of course, the odd cat…
In this volume, Audrey Niffenegger, bestselling author of The Time Traveler’s Wife, has brought together her selection of the very creepiest, weirdest and wittiest ghost stories around. Scare yourself silly with old favourites by Edgar Allan Poe and M. R. James. Entertain the unnerving with tales from Neil Gaiman, Kelly Link and Audrey Niffenegger herself. And as bedtime nears, allay your fears with funny new writing from Amy Giacalone and the classic wit of Saki.
When the nights draw in and the fire burns low, enjoy the eeriness, the dread and the comedy of all things ghostly.

COMING to all good book shops THIS fall:
Welcome TO MR. DEATH'S EPHEMERAL PAGEANT!
This is my official website. It is an art retrospective, a blog, a repository of news, interviews and musings about my writing and art, a tiny cache of teaching materials, and a shop. This site is designed and managed by Ken Gerleve. We will add material as the urge strikes us; future plans include an expanded shop with limited edition prints and oddities. Also, for the first time, we are offering many of my published books for sale directly from our site with Zola Books' new bookstore widget.
Thank you for visiting.
