It's been said that there are no haunted places, only haunted people. That's who you'll find here, the haunted ones. A maintenance technician in remote Alaska, an English thief, a young couple on a road trip across America, an astronaut on a one way ride to Jupiter, an Irish gravedigger, and dozens more. All victims of an otherworldly infection, all tormented by a plague of shadows.

In this anthology, you will find tales of horror and suspense fiction, science fiction, fantasy, and mystery. An eclectic collection of ghost stories and hauntings. If you're looking for diversity on the theme, you can go wrong here.Do you believe in ghosts? You will ...
