A man too careful of danger liveth in continual torment, goes an old proverb but where do we draw the line between courage and rashness? In normal situations we can rely on our common sense to guide us but what do we rely on in situations that involve forces we know nothing about? 

The haunting of the living by the spirits of the departed has long been a popular theme among writers on the supernatural. Edward Bulwer Lytton a nineteenth century English politician added a most interesting tale to the genre. What makes his tale so absorbing is the theory he advances to explain the haunting of the particular house he deals with and what makes his theory so absorbing is its plausibility.

Based on a short story by English writer Edward Bulwer Lytton (1803-1873)
