A Ghost Story Omnibus: Collected Ghost Stories 2016-2018 by H.E. Bulstrode
Bringing together seven of H.E. Bulstrode’s English ghost stories including:
The Ghost of Scarside Beck
A newly-wed Cumbrian vicar and his wife experience a night like none they could ever have foreseen. He may have answered his calling, but who, or what, is calling her?
There's little that will rile a woman over 300 years of age more than the arrival of some flighty young upstart intent upon displacing her. Festivities are about to start as something sinister stirs from its lengthy dormancy, awakened by the arrival of two young guests. The old ways, they find, should not be treated lightly.
Old Crotchet’s Return
George Simpkins is in a state, and it’s not just because of the gin. His wife remains missing, his son a curious and callous enigma, and, most worryingly of all, his spouse’s erstwhile schoolmate has plans afoot for his future. That’s not the half of it, for it’s not only the living he has to contend with.
At Fall of Night
Welcome to Victorian England. Monsieur Benoit Lavarnier, toast of the Parisian art world, finds himself commissioned to paint a portrait of a renowned beauty. He arrives at Shrimmingwood Hall not only with the accoutrements of his trade, but also something sinister lurking in his train.
Was it the molecatcher or the navvies who brought it back? Neither would claim it as their own, and neither would wish to. Whatever it should be, it would seem that it finds its pleasure in the riot of the chase, and in the singling out, and punishment, of its chosen quarry.
The Rude Woman of Cerne
Beatrice Clements, full-time social justice warrior and part-time B&B hostess, proves an irritant not only to her guests, but also to someone, or something, she has never even met. A shadowy, furtive figure is glimpsed amidst the hedgerows and within the banks of an ancient earthwork – the embodiment of old Dorset? Whoever it may be, his sense of justice would appear to be a very different one to her own.
Agnes of Grimstone Peverell
About The Author...
The author's childhood and formative years were spent in the English West Country, a region in which reality and fantasy are frequently confused, and where what elsewhere would be taken as peculiar, regarded as nothing more than an everyday occurrence. Soaked in myth, folklore and cider, his imagination eventually whirred into life and prompted him to pen, or at least type, a number of understated tales of the uncanny, drawing upon his wry observations of esoteric subcultures and beliefs, and the rich store of lore that seems locked into the land itself.
From the mist, the frost, and the wind, comes something ambling through the murk, seeking to ensnare the unwary: a village cunning man; a malignant Jacobean mannequin; a psychedelic Crowley wannabe; the sickle-wielding spirit of old Dorset; a pious guide who emerges from the fabric of a venerable minster; a mediaeval animalistic heretic with a still beating heart. Ghost stories, bizarre rites, and mental disintegration populate a world in which the living and the dead meet in an eternal present, and the author dares - the most horrific thing of all - to use adverbs where appropriate.
His tales have frequently been compared to the likes of those encountered in 'Tales of the Unexpected' and 'The Twilight Zone', but the Bulstrodian world, as you will discover, is a realm unto itself, and quite distinct from either.
He is currently working on a number of future publications, including an occult mystery set in Edwardian Yorkshire, and a full-length novel focusing upon the themes of superstition, piracy, and religious fanaticism, set in seventeenth-century Cornwall and beyond. The latter opens amidst an atmosphere of unease unleashed by a supernatural visitation. Both will be published in 2018.
