29- Favourite Ghost Story 

the signalmanOooo my favourite topic! I have to go with ‘The Signalman’ by Dickens for this one. I love the story and the way it’s told. It really does bring the ghost out of it’s setting of the rural past and right into the urban present. It does fantastic job of combining the anxieties of the day with trauma, theories around hallucination and the social climate of the age. It’s really short but brilliant.
