Good Reads: Peter Ackroyd Writes Ghost Stories

It’s October and in America we will be celebrating Halloween at the end of the month. Horror movies are not my favorite movie genre, but on October 31st, an exception is made. Sometimes being scared out of your wits is just plain old fun!

If you aren’t into movies but you don’t mind reading a scary ghost story, then you may have heard of Peter Ackroyd.

Peter Ackroyd is a writer, in more ways than one. He’s a poet, biographer, and historian. He writes mysteries like The Trial of Elizabeth Cree; a murder mystery set in 1880 Victorian London. People like to describe him as eccentric. Eccentric? Hmmm? Guess that means he even writes ghost stories!

In the mood for ghost stories?

Since it is Halloween season, maybe his collection of English ghost stories might be fun!

What do you think? Want to dive in? You go first! I’m a scared-dee cat! :)
