The Quare Gander (The Complete Ghost Stories of J. Sheridan Le Fanu 6)
Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu gave life to the modern ghost story style and inspired the genre's most famous contributor, M. R. James. Gathered together for the first time are Le Fanu's complete ghost stories in 30 extraordinary recordings. A manuscript from the collection of the late Rev. Francis Purcell, an Irish country priest whose interests extended to the gathering of old local legends. In this comic tale, a farmer, suspecting his favourite goose of being possessed by the spirit of his late father, enlists the help of a fairy doctor and so sets in motion a series of unfortunate events. The recording is accompanied by an eBook essay, reflecting on the story's influences and legacy, written by Le Fanu authority, Jim Rockhill.
