Book cover for Winter Ghosts: Classic Ghost Stories for Christmas (Black Heath Gothic, Sensation and Supernatural)
Musgrave and Lawley were alone with the dead body of their friend, whose masquerading dress had become his shroud.
Doug
The sins worthy of death or vile affliction, according to Victorian ghost stories, are, in order of severity from least to worst: stealing money, betraying a lover, murder, and, most assured of death of all, pretending to be a ghost to scare your friends.

“What can she do but shrink with terror? Soon she is only doll-size in dark doll’s costume. Quivering bones and feverish blood are the stuffings of this doll, its entrails tickled by fear’s funereal plume. It flies to a corner of the room and cringes within enormous shadows, sometimes dreaming there throughout the night—of carriage wheels rioting in a lavender mist or a pearly fog, of nacreous fires twitching beyond the margins of country roads, of cliffs and stars.”
Thomas Ligotti, Songs of a Dead Dreamer

“Every story needs to be told in just the right way.”

“If the wheels of the universe are in true, then good always compensates for evil—but good can be awful as well.”
Stephen King, It

Thomas Ligotti
“In supernatural horror stories, however, magical thinking is a completely different matter. Those characters contending with what seems to be the work of magic will deny till the very last moment that anything magical is going on. They will invoke reason and evidence and eek out corroborations for the cause of their problems. But readers of these stories are rarely, if ever, on the side of these characters. They desperately want to believe that there is indeed something magical going on and they are primed to accept it whenever it occurs. Some readers especially enjoy a story with bad magic, as it assures them that magic is confined to fiction and will not leak into their real lives. This is the most perverse form of magical thinking and the one least likely to be recognized as such.”
Thomas Ligotti, The Nightmare Factory, Vol. 2

“As a token bit of mysticism, the mason had fixed an Eye of God way up on the steeple, above the clock - an oval shape carved into a block of stone that I'd noticed on the old country churches Farther dragged us round at weekends. Yet at Saint Jude's, it seemed more like a sharp-eyed overseer of the factory floor, looking out for the workshy and the seditious.”
Andrew Michael Hurley, The Loney
