AN ANCIENT GIFT AND OTHER STORIES
THREE STORIES OF THE SUPERNATURAL.
By Jeanne Grunert
“WHERE AN EDGAR ALLAN POE MEETS FLANNERY O’CONNOR, A HIGHLY RECOMMENDED READ!”
– REGINA, AMAZON.COM REVIEW (VERIFIED PURCHASER)
An Ancient Gift and Other Stories is a collection of three “light” horror stories. These tales of the paranormal are akin to old-fashioned campfire stories – stories that offer a sense of the uncanny without the gore.
“The Glove” offers the chilling tale of a woman recounting how her grandfather’s prejudices – and gift for sorcery – terrorized a neighborhood boy. Is her son at risk, too?
“Friday Night Visitor” features the old trope of a deal with the devil. But unlike fiddle contests of old, Rita, our heroine, must guess a riddle to unveil the identity of the visitor and save the guy she loves.
“An Ancient Gift”, the title tale, offers glimpse at a reluctant psychic. Anna and her sister Amy are charged with clearing out her grandmother’s house for the real estate agents when they uncover an unusually wrapped package in her father’s childhood closet, a deck of antique tarot cards. Did their father have the ancient gift of divination, and does one of the sisters have it, too?
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING…
“Give YOURSELF A GIFT!
A compilation of three eerie short stories sure to provoke the imagination and make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Where an Edgar Allan Poe meets Flannery O’Connor, a highly recommended read!” – Regina, Amazon review (verified purchaser).
“A collection of three short horror stories. The stories feel like they were written in the spirit of a “campfire” ghost story. They are quite entertaining. I highly recommend for horror fans looking for something light to read on a dark and stormy night.” – Amazon review (verified purchaser).
“In the likes of Stephen King, Ms. Grunet has created unique worlds where ordinary objects and events become the source of mystery and fear. I liked that her stories contained no gore but were spine tingling spooky. The characters were well developed and made me wonder about them after their tales were told. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys ghost and supernatural stories.” – Debra Holmes, Amazon review (verified purchaser).
