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