The Gravedigger’s Daughter: Ghost Stories and Other Otherworldly Tales

By Donald Olson

Ghosts gay and straight, living and dead, haunt the pages of this collection of tales set in five different locales and time periods.

Victorian London is the background for The Gravedigger’s Daughter, a novella-length thriller about an impoverished young woman raised in a cemetery and forced into the ghoulish life of a grave robber.

In Uncle Jack, the penniless nephew of a 1950s film star inherits his dead uncle’s mid-century modern house in Beverly Hills and gradually realizes that he is not the only one laying claim to the estate.

In The Selfie of Doralynne Gray, a selfie-obsessed woman is taken hostage by her own image.

A restoration project on a 500-year-old manor in Provence draws antiques-dealer Michael Fischer, the title character in Michael’s St. Michael into a terrifying encounter with a violent and unquiet past.

And when a homophobic teenager named Slayde destroys his gay neighbour’s cherished collection of garden gnomes, he learns to his horror that the gnomes in Gnome Man’s Land are not the gentle creatures everyone thinks they are.
