  • The Dead House

    The Dead House

    ... the past holds constant sway ...

    By Billy O'Callaghan

    Perched on an incline, with the land spilling down to a glittering sea, sits a ruined cottage. It calls to Maggie Turner, who is running from her own demons. But this house has a long, grim history, and has known hard living and far too much death. In some places, some things are better left undisturbed. A modern ghost story by a masterful writer.
