Irish-born playwright and novelist Samuel Beckett, one of the most individual voices of post-war literature, famously said: 'Personally, I have no bone to pick with graveyards, I take the air there willingly, perhaps more willingly than elsewhere, when take the air I must.' In a similarly phlegmatic spirit, Wordsworth Editions presents this spellbinding collection of chilling Gothic tales of the macabre, all drawn from the rich and varied literary tradition of a culture long in thrall to things supernatural. The Irish, as William Butler Yeats remarked, 'any day prefer a ghost story or a fairy tale to The Times newspaper'. Featuring the imaginative writings of such towering masters of the genre as Sheridan Le Fanu, Bram Stoker, Patrick Kennedy, Thomas Crofton-Croker and George Moore, this volume of ghoulish masterpieces from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries is an encapsulation of the arcane lore, magic realism and fantastic creativity of the Irish.

`It was as if the house had begun very faintly to beat. Faintly at first, a mere stirring of the vacant atmosphere, yet, as the minutes passed, it gathered strength ... Whatever had dwelt there had come back.'The spectres which haunt these Irish ghost stories include massacred Spanish sailors, a silver-robed woman who plies her guests with poison, a mutilated pedlar, a benign but icy embrace, and the devil himself. They are drawn from the rich and varied literary tradition of a culture long enchanted bythings supernatural, a land where ghosts and ghost-seers are common. The collection includes contributions from familiar writers such as J. S. Le Fanu and Elizabeth Bowen, but also rarer stories by authors such as Peter Somerville-Large, Forrest Reid, and Rosa Mulholland.

The ghost story holds a special place in Ireland. It provided the raw material for evenings of storytelling that were a common feature of country life up to the 1950s (and frequently beyond). Unexplained psychic phenomena fascinate people from all walks of life. Many are afraid, ashamed and embarrassed to come forward for fear of not being taken seriously. Of course, we can't prove that ghosts exist, we are in a different realm of consciousness when we talk about ghosts. But however strange or unusual the feelings that people experience, the experiences themselves are nonetheless real.

Irish fairy and folklore there were in abundance but there was no book of ghosts. And so I determined to supply this sad omission. Suddenly a brilliant thought struck me. I wrote out a letter, stating exactly what I wanted, and what I did "not" want, and requesting the readers of it either to forward me ghost stories, or else to put me in the way of getting them: this letter was sent to the principal Irish newspapers on October 27, and published on October 29, and following days. On October 30, the first answers reached me. Within a fortnight I had sufficient material to make a book; within a month I had so much material that I could pick and choose -- and more was promised. . . .

Ghosts Stories of Historic Irish Philadelphia contains eight historic tales of some grand and some humble Irish in 19th Century Philadelphia in the throws of Industrial expansion. Two important historical events - the Duffy's Cut Murders and the Nativists Riots - act as the backdrop for these sometimes brutal tales of 19th Century Irish who came to Philadelphia seeking an escape from economic hardships in their native Ireland. Religious clashes that began in Ireland came with the new immigrants faced with hardships that they had not anticipated. The Irish men and women brought to life tell their tales of hardship that have made them ghosts that roam their old haunts in Kensington and outlaying rural lands being fitted out with new railroads.

For centuries, Ireland has been a place of the uncanny, with tales and legends of magic and curses, ghosts and fantastical beings, each and every story told breathlessly and with an oath to its truth. When researcher St. John D. Seymour placed a series of ads in local Irish newspapers soliciting people¿s tales of their encounters with ghosts, he was doubtful of what results he might obtain.Within a month, he received enough ghostly narratives to fill a book¿and still more were on the way. In True Irish Ghost Stories, he and Harry Neligan share the accounts they were sent from all corners of the Emerald Isle, tales of haunted houses and haunted places, of apparitions and harbingers, of the famous Banshee and other legendary ghosts, and even a few cases that resulted in rational explanations for the apparently supernatural goings-on. But whatever the stories represent to the tellers or the listeners, one fact emerges clearly:The fantastic and the supernatural are as much a part of the present as they are the past in Ireland. The new Factual Planet edition of this seminal classic features memorable original photos of Ireland and an introduction by Patrick Dorsey, author of the bestselling true ghost stories collection Haunted Webster Groves.

Second in the Collection known as '' 'Twas a Misty Eve' Celtic Horror Stories, this story has been written in 18th century English {18th century English is just a wee bit--not much though-- more formal than we use these days--and easy to understand}. It's as though a 'Jane Austen'-style novel {like 'Sense and Sensibility'} crashed into a supernatural thriller. The story is set in the year 1800. One lady is haunted by a ghost, and as she is about to marry, she is informed that her father-in-law shall not think well of her if he finds plates and spoons levitating in her cottage; and this is all well and good advice-- but for that the fact that it's hard to make spoons stop floating in one's cottage, even if one's new in-laws-to-be don't think such things are respectable goings-on. Mrs. Ardall, a friend of the haunted lady, speaks of having herself witnessed supernatural events: a hopping cushion and a flying fork. Mrs. Ardall assures the dear lady that the only logical way to deal with said supernatural events is to utterly ignore them!--The lady is impressed.....but still, what will she do about the ghost that is haunting her, and how shall she convince the village that she is not insane? The going opinion of the day, in that century, seems to be that if one is going insane, it's best to pretend one is not going insane, for polite society demands a certain amount of sanity to be present in everyone...and it's not polite to be blatantly insane....at least not when sitting in formal sitting rooms; thus the lady learns to frown at rattling furniture, but what will she do about the dreams that cause her to travel to the year 1700? Under the watchful eye of her stern, Irish father-in-law- to-be, the haunted lady must try to follow her friend's advice: she must learn to not believe in ghosts, for it only encourages ghosts to also believe that they are real. Amidst advice concerning corsets, fainting-- and how to ignore fork-rattling ghosts, the main question is...will she learn to travel through time without cutting her hand? The research that went into this book, concerning the customs, greetings, clothing, popular topics of the day, food, wagons, weather, cottages, cooking methods, grains, and shoes, was detailed, so detailed that this book is a treasure-chest of information about what the Ireland of 1800 was like. You will find evidence of the same detailed research into customs, clothing, etc...in 'A Welsh Ghost Story' {also in this series of Celtic Horror Stories}, and you will also find that our book 'A Killer in Heaven' {set in England} is a treasure-chest of information about the customs and clothing, etc...of that era and place--in which that story was set in. My husband and I feel well qualified to write ghost stories, for once a visitor to our Celtic cottage said: 'Your home is just what I expected, with you two writing ghost novels. It's ...enchanted.' 'You mean 'enchanting' ? I said, hopefully. 'No, ivy around the front, a big door knocker...I mean spooky!' he said. 'Oh, I said, and I wondered if I had overdone it with the antiques everywhere. Please enjoy our books!
