Be My Victim
: Author, editor, and internet brawler
Nick Mamatas, and I have a civil chat about ghosts, spirits, and dudes that go "Did you hear that?" in the night.
Though stories about ghosts and spirits have existed since earliest man - (That is a supposition, of course. I wasn't there, and earliest man wasn't big on backing up his files) - we're going to focus the conversation on contemporary treatments of hauntings - mostly. Recently, my guest, Nick Mamatas, teamed up with
Ellen Datlow to edit the anthology, Haunted Legends
, for Tor Books, so he's been exposed to some traditional and some not-so-traditional tales of spectral disturbance.
