5 Reviews
The Bleeding Horse and Other Ghost Stories infests the author's Dublin neighborhood with an authentic population of ghosts, ghouls and goblins. Brian J. Showers has filled each story with fascinating regional history, local atmosphere and architectural details that are clearly visible today. While this gives the stories a factual flavor, the supernatural twists and turns are entirely fictional. The result is a realistic yet deliciously spooky portrait of Dublin.
