“His indirect way of approaching a character or an action, striving to realize it by surrounding rather than invading it, is ideally suited to the indefinite and suggestive presentation of a ghost story.

(introduction to "Sir Edmund Orme" by Henry James)”
Herbert A. Wise, Great Tales of Terror and the Supernatural

Kate Chisman
“The chandelier was wearing on its rubber support and the crack at the side of the ceiling hold was getting bigger. “One day that’s going to fall on us and spear you through the heart,” he said. I turned to kiss him on the shoulder and closed my eyes.”
Kate Chisman, Creep
