Russell Kirk's ghost stories

The Intercollegiate Studies Institute has an excellent archive of various lectures and symposium online.  One of which is Russell Kirk talking about ghost stories and then reading one of his own: A Long, Long Trail A-Winding.  You can listen to it here.  Seems appropriate on Halloween.

For more on Kirk and ghost stores see my review of his Ancestral Shadows and his Gothic novel The Old House of Fear.

I work in communications and public affairs. I try to squeeze in as much reading as I can while still spending time with my wife and two kids (and cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Michigan Wolverines during football season).

  1. I dug out my copy of Ancestral Shadows for tonight. There are still a couple that I don’t think I’ve read. Lovely stuff.
