Publisher's Summary

Do you believe in ghosts? No? How about you visit this house and then decide?

There is a haunted house up there that squats like a huge wooden toad behind a thick grove of pine trees on the end of a dead end road. Maybe once it was painted, but now it has a gray cadaver-like complexion, and its siding is sagged and splintered as if the devil had been poking at it with his pitchfork. Its windows are streaked and stained, and trying to see through them from the outside is like trying to look a skull in the eye.

If this doesn't get you to believe in the supernatural, listen to the rest of this short story and you will believe; just like I did!

Warning: Don't listen to this story if you have a weak heart or are subject to night terrors or nightmares! Bill Stokes richly tells the tale of the haunted house in vivid and almost poetic words; you cannot help but be sucked in. Listen if you dare!

    "Great campfire style ghost story"
    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy these short stories by Bill Stokes! This is a very well written ghost story! It's the kind of tale you could sit around a campfire and tell the kids. Excellent narration by Jeff Hays!
