The Ghost of Scarside Beck – H.E. Bulstrode

A newly-wed Cumbrian vicar and his wife ‘enjoy’ a hotter night than they could ever have anticipated.

A vicar’s vocation often presents unforeseen challenges, although the supernatural is seldom one of them. Leaving the troubles of urban West Yorkshire behind him for a new life in the idyllic Lake District parish of Scarside Beck, the Reverend Paul Thorpe soon discovers that marrying a local brings more than he could have expected. He may have answered his calling, but who, or what, is calling his wife?

An understated ghostly novelette whose initial light tone builds to a dark, and chilling, climax. Also available in the Kindle collection A Ghost Story Omnibus: Collected Ghost Stories 2016-2018, and in the Amazon paperback Uncanny Tales.
