"Life is for the living. The ghosts, ghasts and ghoulies are not your friends". -Helena Sturbridge Thornwhistle, Shepherd: Area 2
The 52 Weeks Project presents:
Firefly Ricky, a classic "Parasitical Ghast", or as is more often known, a "Follower", attached himself to at least six victims before his discorporation in 1986. In life he was a lonely child whose fascination with chasing fireflies led him into an unfortunate conversation with an oncoming milk truck in 1957.
2 PRETTY POLLY
Originally inspired by the dark folk tune by Ralph Stanley, and originally made famous by Jean Ritchie's haunting version.
THE GREY LADY
The creak in the halls of a loose floorboard, an unnerving sense of someone in the room just out of eye sight... these are all signs of the presence of this darkly creeper. The only solace can be found in the morning light so try and stick it out and survive the night.
One of many and not even the oldest of the bunch, a classic bog-ghast who often reaches out from her murky depths to clutch after the ankles of innocent children playing too close to the water's edge.
