Kirk’s Ghostly Tales

Jeffrey D. Pearce recently guest edited two “lib guides”—thematic lists of reading resources—for the library of Everett Community College in Everett, Washington. In “Ghostly Sightings…And Other Scary Stories…”, Pearce links to Russell Kirk’s short story anthology Ancestral Shadows, the essay “A Cautionary Note on the Ghostly Tale,” and Dr. Kirk reading “There’s a Long, Long Trail A-Winding.” In “A Tribute to Ray Bradbury,” he features a quote by Dr. Kirk and a link to his essay on Bradbury.
