Ten Tales: Ghost Stories for North Manchester is a series of original fiction I’ve written for North Manchester FM, all set in the North Manchester area. From Crosslee to Crumpsall, Harpurhey to Hollinwood, there are tales of apparitions, nightmares, disturbances, messages from the beyond… and, of course, ghosts.

These are old-school ghost stories on the wireless, so close the curtains, get yourself a cup of cocoa, turn the dial, and try to ignore that rapping, tapping at your chamber door…
