Publisher's Summary

More Cumbrian Ghost Stories brings you 16 ghost stories, horror stories, weird tales, and dark fairy tales set in the English county of Cumbria and the Lake District by Tony Walker, author of Cumbrian Ghost Stories and narrator of the Classic Ghost Stories Podcast.

From "The Milk-White Child of Ravenglass" to "A Brief Stop in Barrow in Furness", "The Screaming Skulls of Calgarth", and "The Dalston Vampire", not to mention the "High Harrington Horror" and the "Mole Catcher of Barbon", these stories dance around the county of Cumbria to horrify, scare, terrify, and also make you smile and even laugh a bit, depending on the tale. 

For those who have enjoyed Cumbrian Ghost Stories, London Horror Stories, Haunted Castles, and Horror Stories for Halloween, this is more of the same from Tony Walker's inimitable style.

Excellent collection of stories of the macabre!

I really enjoyed this collection.

A few of my favorites:

1. The Dalston Vampire. Set in the 14th century Scottish Highlands. Very well done.

4. The High Harrington Horror. This one is extremely well done. It's one of those stories that after it's over, you wish there was more! A kid goes to visit a well-to-do friend who's family lives in a run down mansion.

7. Dubmill Point. Set on the shore of the NW Corner of England, a painter looking for scenes to paint ends up getting much more than they bargained for. A little eerie at the end.

8. Eachy of Bassenthwaite. This was fantastic! I wish it had been longer. The ending was not what I expected. Kind of like a cross between the Loch Ness Monster, and Lovecraft's Cthulhu. This would have made a very good X-Files episode.

9. Bella Sheep Head. Not really a ghost story, but certainly held my attention.

Tony Walker is an excellent narrator. I've listened to his podcast (The Classic Ghost Stories Podcast - available here on Amazon) where he narrates (and then discusses) many of the older ghost stories. He also makes a very good writer as well.

The reader should be aware that not all of the stories involve ghosts. There are vampires, cryptids, humanoids, serial killers and more. A wide variety.

Many (most?) of the stories are set in the modern day. I'll be honest, at first I wasn't too excited about that. Many modern stories tend to be filled with a lot of foul language, sex, and lots of gore to the point where the story is gross, rather than scary or creepy. That's not an issue here. Walker writes very well and in language worthy of a fine ghost story.

So good!

The stories are nicely varied and each true to the time period - all extremely well written and scary enough that reading just before bedtime proved to be an unwise decision for me! And the narration! Absolutely flawless. I can’t recommend this book enough. I was afraid it wouldn’t measure up to the first book, but it absolutely did.

Instant Classics

Tony Walker writes stories on the level of James, Pierce, Benson, Lovecraft ...

And with that compelling voice, his narration is always first class.

Not really ghost stories, as the title implies

Although I loved the the initial Ghost Stories and looked forward to more, I was disappointed. Not wanting to wait for more free credits, I even purchased another credit to expedite listening! More Ghost Stories is indeed, not more ghost stories. Most of the tales are more horror-related full of monsters and bizarre creatures. Tony’s narration, however, is always fabulous. The book should be Cumbrian Monster Stories!

Forget reality, read these great ghost stories.

Ghosts, faeries, vampires, and other horrors to feast upon! Tony Walker serves up a real treat, horrifying with touches of humor. Don't miss this one.
