Hauntings

Short stories of poltergeists, shamans, ghosts...


A dead boy stands in a dark farm-yard, staring at the lit windows of the farmhouse kitchen.

An old man, living alone in a farmhouse surrounded by modern estates, sees spirits dancing on an ancient hillside.

A bullied schoolgirl finds a protector -- at a price.


A writer listens to the telling of a dream -- and can't sleep easily after.


A poltergeist joins a couple in their home…


An elderly couple are woken nightly by the return of their young neighbour -- who was murdered. Yet still she comes home late…

An ancient wood emerges from the lamposts and walls of a city…


And a spiritual medium is exposed as a trickster.
