A Re-Read From Last Year

— feeling ghost
A Christmas Tale - Austin Crawley

Since I just finished my most recent reading of Dickens' A Christmas Carol, I just had to follow it up with a re-read of this one.


The premise is that three women do a seance to raise the fictional ghosts from the Dickens story, but they get results they don't expect.


This is one for Horror readers. It gets uncomfortable and scary in various ways. My review from last year is here http://loram.booklikes.com/post/1314714/a-christmas-tale
