Publisher's Summary

A GHOST you say? Well, when young Clayton tells his story of encountering a rather... incompetent apparition trapped in the "real" world, and how he helped the spook return to the ether, his friends at the Mermaid Club refused to believe him. Until he showed them HOW he helped the poor soul. And what happened next, changed everyone's view of the afterlife. In the classic story, The Story of the Inexperienced Ghost, H.G. Wells takes listeners on an adventure into the unknown with witty, and shocking, twists and turns.
