Derry has long had a rich tradition of storytelling. For many years, fireside accounts of the mysterious and the macabre were commonplace in households throughout the city, enthralling and entertaining young and old alike.
In tribute to those nostalgic, sadly bygone days, Parade of Phantoms resurrects a selection of local spine-chilling tales from these spooky archives.
Based on the actual experiences and reminiscences of people from different parts of the city, these ‘spirited’ tales take the reader on a terrifying tour of the spectral spectrum – from creaking haunted houses and bloodcurdling noises in the dead of night, to wailing banshees and a parade of other ghostly encounters.
Where there is no imagination, there is no horror.
Arthur Conan Doyle
