A little ghost story for grownups.

Two years ago, Kitsmumma at Redbubble put up a photo that drew a lot of admiring comments. People were quite taken with the photo’s subject and it obviously stirred memories of happier, less troubled times.

I didn’t see it that way at all. I thought it possessed a subtle menace.

The first elements of a story began to light up inside my head. And when I approached Sylvia with the idea – more a warning than an idea, perhaps – she was very encouraging. Which was a relief, because what I had in mind went in the completely opposite direction to the flow of general opinion.

I don’t know whether ghost stories are a regular part of Halloween, but this seems an appropriate time of year to present The Station Master’s Cottage.


Many thanks again to Kits for allowing me to put a very different spin on her work. Original version here.
