On a side note, two characters in this story talked about Jane Austin's Northanger Abbey, referring to its 'haunted' passages. Personally, I don't care for Ms. Austin (I know, I know) but not remembering much about Northanger Abbey, I thought maybe I had missed something. I pulled up a LibriVox recording of it and gave it a fresh listen. Nope. Still don't like her. But thanks, Matthew J. Kirby, for refreshing my love of Mary Shelley, the mother of dark fiction. I think she would've appreciated your story.
Read any good books lately?
I read more than just classic novels. This is where I post about recent books I have read. Have you read the same book? Got a different opinion? Let me know! I'd love to hear about it.
