Haunted House

O'er all there hung the shadow of a fear,

A sense of mystery the spirit daunted,

And said, as plain as whisper in the ear,

The place is haunted!

Featured Book

Spirits of an Industrial Age: Ghost Impersonation, Spring-heeled Jack, and Victorian Society.

Spirits of an Industrial Age tells the story of the ghosts that roamed the cities of Britain throughout the nineteenth century. These were not phantoms in a traditional supernatural sense, but apparently flesh-and-blood ghosts, which periodically took to the streets, harassing those out alone after nightfall.
