Firstly the reason these stories are important to me is that ghosts were people once.
It’s fascinating to learn about how they lived what they did.
Their presence gives us a glimpse into the lives of regular people in these towns.
You don’t have to believe in ghosts to enjoy the narrative.
Not all spectres are fearsome and angry, some want to communicate, after all, they were people.
It’s not as though death steals our humanity usually the circumstances of life or choices we make do that.
That's a different kind of story that haunts me.
