Length: 61 pages55 minutes


War! Witches! Sorcerers! Spies!

Meet the most HAUNTED, and in Some Cases EVIL, collection of Characters in The Ghost Chaser's Daughter!

What Dark Forces prowl, just Beyond The Grave,
Ever vigilant for an opportunity to return to the Land of The Living?
Ghosts, and Beasts, and The Forever-Damned
Roam this terrain, according to The Ghost Chaser's Daughter.

Coyotes bay at a blood red moon. . .
Doors slam shut, and then slowly creak open. . .
Footsteps follow The Reader into The Night as
The Ghost Chaser's Daughter, Emily Hill,
Takes you into her Other World in this Full Collection of
Profoundly Haunting tales.

Included in this Twenty-Four Story Collection of Emily Hill Ghost Stories are:

1. GROVE Of TERROR. Civil War Union Officer Speck is on a mission to save the slaves along the Carolina Ghost Coast - an admirable mission. That is, he's on an admirable mission until he learns that buried treasure lies within yards of where a battle is to take place the next morning between the Confederate line and General Gilmore's 62nd Ohio regiment.

2. TO KILL Ivan Gorsky. Written as a salute to the Hungarian revolution attempt of October 1956. Who is Ivan Gorsky and why would even angels want him dead? Tour the Budapest Opera House and spend the night in the company of this Russian intelligence agent as he faces performance hall angels, and his own devils. You'll soon see why the mission was always, "To Kill Ivan Gorsky".

3. LOST SOULS of New Orleans. A dark specter rattles the doorknobs, and roams the rooms of a French Quarter hotel as the Present slides ever-so-close to The Past - The Tragic Past.

4. Chunya, And The HUNGARIAN WITCH. "Oh! She's so ugly!" And, at this exclamation from neighbors, the new mother beamed at her newborn daughter. Learn why - from the beginning of all folklore and legends - little girls from the village of ́Opusztaszer are so. . . "Chunya!" This folklore tale, delivered straight from Transylvania, features the vanity of a forest witch and the revenge of a Hungarian sorcerer.

5. LIGHTNING Strikes. Poor Dennis Sheridan, Florida-native. Considering what he has been through he does not need a suspicious officer of the law on his doorstep asking about his wife of twenty-four years; particularly as he brushes the dirt from her grave off of his hands.

6. CHECKMATE! How feverishly brutal can one marriage become? Charles and Clare, an elderly Seattle couple, provide us with the answer to this riddle in Checkmate! Charles, with his failing eyesight and frustrating deafness parses with Clare, his beauty-queen wife of past, as she plots her escape from the richly appointed manor which has become her prison. Checkmate! When is a marriage worth more than a thirty-six dollar check, but less than a successful chess move?

A 2012 NaNoWriMo winner, Ms. Hill is currently working on her 2013 Halloween release, a novel entitled, "Losing Sight: New Orleans in The Voodoo Era".
