THE FLAMES OF STALBRIDGE MANOR, one of 12 tales of haunting from GHOSTS AND OTHER SUPERNATURAL GUESTS by P.J. Hodge.
“To his horror, he could see that the light stemmed from the brilliance of flames burning within. And then, in an instant, he felt an intense heat, blasting across his face as if an oven door had been opened. Only a moment later, from out of the inferno, came the most horrific of sights: a woman, her body aflame, shrieking with a hellish sound, pitifully attempting to pull the searing fabric away from her blistering flesh.”
THE HAUNTED PALACE says…
“The tales range from childhood adventures with a tragic twist (The Viaduct); the truly horrific spectre of The Flames of Stalbridge Manor; to the heartwarming A Tip of the Hat. This is a perfect book to read, by a crackling fire, in a lonely manor house, on a dark and stormy night – was that a tree-branch tapping on the window-pane..or could it be Ghosts and other Supernatural Guests……!”
