The publisher's description of the content: "David G. Rowlands has been writing ghost stories for the British small press for many years, and his supernatural fiction has won him a large following. His first collection, THE EXECUTOR AND OTHER GHOST STORIES, demonstrated Rowlands's ability as a writer in the Jamesian tradition, and also introduced further stories of Mr Batchel, based on E. G. Swain's fictional clergyman, and Fr O'Connor. THEY MIGHT BE GHOSTS has a number of traditional stories, too, but in this collection Rowlands tells stories with a supernatural twist based on his many life experiences. Thus we have strange events encountered by a club of owners of Riley motor cars; stories of weird happenings in the life of a Pest Control Operative; very unusual happenings connected with events in the life of a player of the Hawaiian guitar; the weird and wonderful world of the garden railway enthusiast; encounters with a psychic detective agency; and even a couple of personal encounters with the great M. R. James himself." The photograph reproduced at the rear of the volume shows the Ghost Story Press team and the author (publishers: David Tibet; Richard Dalby and Kat Cormie, along with author David Rowland). Just a very slight warp to boards, faint bump to upper edge of rear board - else a bright, unamarked near Fine copy (no dust jacket issued). Item #69679
