Much of the material presented below was written by me, for no other reason than to try to scare the pants off you!

There’s something oddly enjoyable about hunkering down with some really scary stories at night when the world is asleep. Reading eerie tales of disembodied spirits, dark and creepy stories, chilling accounts of encounters with the un-dead… this kind of thing can keep you awake and make the hair rise up on the back of your neck.

Those are the kinds of short ghost stories you’ll find on this page. Whether it’s a story about a haunted cemetery, a haunted castle, or a creepy old haunted house, they’re here.  I know, because I put them there. Hope you enjoy them!
