DARKNESS THERE – BUT SOMETHING MORE – About This Book:
Who has not been intrigued and enthralled by the spirit world, ghosts and other other-worldly beings? Or to say it in a simpler way, the paranormal? Ambiguous presences surround us. Whether they are in the form of stories narrated by our grandparents, or in the form of haunting, riveting supernatural stories in books and movies, they have held us under their spell. They continue to engage and allure us from our youngest days and even until the present. In fact, the prominence of paranormal investigators, Ghostbusters and others documenting the supernatural world in today’s age, which is overpowered by science and technology, shows that we crave to push our boundaries as rational beings and delve into the phenomena which we cannot define or explain tangibly.
This anthology of 30 selected ghost stories by an international group of authors celebrates the spine-chilling thrills and sense of awe and bewilderment which we feel in the presence of this inexplicable world. A world which is inhabited by supernatural beings. Pick up a copy of DARKNESS THERE – BUT SOMETHING MORE and experience the cataclysmic, weird, and at times, the benevolent spirit world. You will never experience a dull moment in this roller-coaster ride!
It would be great if you can add this book to your TBR list
