Neil Gaiman (1960 ….)

The Flints of Memory Lane

Taken from the collection Fragile Things: Short Fictions & Wonders (2006)

Gaiman describes his ghost story as an ‘unsatisfactory’ thing.  I’m sure he knows it is not. It’s precisely the fact that it’s not constructed and is seemingly such a small thing that makes it truly creepy.  I was certainly spooked.
