Teaser Tuesdays: The Silence of Ghosts

This week my teaser lines come from The Silence of Ghosts, by Jonathan Aycliffe -- one of several spooky books I've read lately.
We opened the door and made for the hallway. The sound was louder here, and when I looked up the staircase I could make out a shape, large and inhuman, as it thumped and slithered its way down. (p.94 / loc. 1490)
Ah, yes -- slithering on the stairs. Sounds like Lovecraft, yes? I actually enjoyed this one quite a lot, but I've really got to get away from all these nameless horrors for a while.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Jenn at A Daily Rhythm. If you'd like to read more teasers, or take part yourself, just head on over to her blog.

And please feel free to leave me a link to your Teaser Tuesday post in your comment here.


  1. Ooh, that "slithering" made me cringe...just a bit. But like a train wreck we keep watching, I want to know more. Thanks for sharing.

    Here's mine...it's light and not creepy: “DUNE ROAD”

  2. I'm trying to imagine thumping and slithering at the same time. Sounds creepy!
    My Tuesday post features a literary classic: OF HUMAN BONDAGE.

  3. Creepy! I'm shivering at the image that's created in my head.

  4. Thumping AND slithering?!? Freakish!


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
