Penelope Pettiweather reviewed

The Complete Weird Epistles of Penelope Pettiweather, Ghost Hunter by Jessica Amanda Salmonson has been reviewed on the The Book Lover’s Boudoir website:

The Complete Weird Epistles of Penelope Pettiweather, Ghost Hunter is a hugely enjoyable collection of stories. My favourite type of supernatural fiction is the ghost story. Sinister presences, strange noises, spooky events, bad omens and a sense of foreboding do more for me than blood and gore . . . The collection reminded me of the work of Arthur Conan Doyle and M.R James. ‘The Hounds of the Hearth’ opens the collection with a bang. This is an excellent story . . . The Complete Weird Epistles of Penelope Pettiweather, Ghost Hunter is a must for fans of ghost stories.

The Complete Weird Epistles is available in print from Amazon and other online dealers. Also available for the Kindle.

Theo squatted down. He heard his knees crack. The fire itself was strangely quiet. He stared into the blaze, mesmerized by the weird beauty of the hounds. Then the fire flared again. It seemed the hounds had leapt across the hearth! Theo started to stand, shouting but they bore him down. Their snarling was the sound of an inferno. They fastened to his neck and right arm. The flashlight went rolling. He choked out one more shout, then burning fangs tore out his vocal cords.
