Now, during the month of March, we continue to explore the masters of the ghost story.
Matthew Phipps Shiel , who lived from 1865-1947, was a prolific British writer of West Indian descent. His work was lauded by both H.G. Wells and H.P. Lovecraft as essential to the development of weird fiction. Shiel’s dark imagination continues to influence writers of supernatural fiction to this day. I hope you enjoy today’s story of a courtesan who returns to torment her tormentor.
And now, Xélucha, by M.P. Shiel
