Eibonvale Press - Tomorrow, When I Was The Illiterate Ghost

Published October 2019

The Illiterate Ghost is a probing collection of short stories, miniatures and flash fictions exploring ideas and feelings of apprehension concerning the satirical, the quirky, the mad, the horrific, the erotic and the unnameable. They're sharp and surprising hauntings that function individually and collectively. Powerful compact fiction to discover the ghosts within us and without.
