Shades of Ghostly Horror

Who’s afraid of some ghosts?

Send us your stories of the corporeally challenged. These stories can involve insubstantial to realistic lifelike person/ animal forms which can haunt a person/ place/ object. Whether they are void of humanity or emotional concepts representing complex psychological experiences, let the spirit move you to relay tales of their exploits. Is there a chill in the air? Or is that simply a group of ghosts? Either way, it should be a phantasmic spooky time. Horror can range from apocalyptical, paranormal, or serial killers. Characters can include paranormal, human, alien etc while time period can be past, contemporary, future or anything in between.
