AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Inside the house where Arnold Taylor has lived for 65 years — 61 alive and 4 dead — it's business as usual. Tenants are fleeing into the night just as quickly as the old ghost can scare them out! And then Kit Corwin comes to town. Little does he realise that his fledgling talent as a horror writer is about to take on a blood-chilling new meaning...'
