“Ghost Pine Lake” Hauntings, An Anthology. Ed. Hannah Kate(July 20, 2014, Hic Dragones Press)
Edited by Hannah Kate of Hic Dragones, a creative writing and literature organization, based in Manchester UK. A memory, a spectre, a feeling of regret, a sense of déjà vu, ghosts, machines, something you can’t quite put your finger on, a dark double, the long shadow of illness, your past, a nation’s past, your doppelgänger, a place, a song, a half-remembered rhyme, guilt, trauma, doubt, a shape at the corner of your eye, the future, the dead, the undead, the living… We are all haunted. Chapter 2, “Ghost Pine Lake,” contributed by Brandy Schillace.
