Whispers in the Dark

A young tribal girl whom no one respects has a gift for the written word.


The Witch in the Water

Anna makes medical remedies with her mother, and one day the preacher’s son comes to her house to court her. But when Anna dismisses his affections, the furious young man is determined to get Anna sentenced as a witch.


The Easiest Room in Hell

It’s the twenty-first century, and a senile man living in a psychiatric ward is terrified of the spiral staircase looming in the hospital.


The Song of Destiny

In the far future, a pilot has the job of helping fly a spaceship, but when he notices his co-pilots are slowly being killed off, things begin to get out of hand.

The stories contain:

• Minor profanity
• A man admires a woman’s figure and attempts to kiss her
• Violence (one character is drowned and people are mysteriously murdered on a spaceship)

The Ghosts of Heaven contains four interconnected short stories from an imaginative blend of genres, including historical fiction, poetry, and science fiction. The stories all revolve around the same main subject: a spiral.
