'Benny Geister's Uncle Gustav meets the first Unseen Presence on the Bethel Road, near the place where Maria Rollenberg and Marcus Kreutzer mysteriously disappeared on their wedding night half a century before. Maria, complete with wedding gown and veil, appears after a tin-kettling for two newlyweds. From then on the fun is fast and furious, as a succession of ghosts and ghoulies, phantom horses and poltergeists plague the Geister household and the community at large.'

'Ebenezer Blitz, an eccentric hermit who lives in the Australian hills with his half-dingo, half-domesticated dog, evokes in young, high-spirited Bodo Schneider strong feelings of loyalty and compassion.'
