The Inexperienced Ghost by H. G. Wells

The Inexperienced Ghost - Wonderfully told story.

The Inexperienced Ghost - A short tale shared between men at a club after a day of male bonding.
Is the storyteller making this up or is somethig disturbing happening?
The men decide to investigate the tale and have the teller demonstrate the events...

H.G. Wells looks at ghosts with a sense of humor. Spot on dialogue/narration, and evocative of a different era.

Herbert Wells often called the father of science fiction. British author Herbert George (H. G.) Wells literary works are notable for being some of the first titles of the science fiction genre. Include such famed titles as The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, The Island of Doctor Moreau, and The Invisible Man.

Despite being fixedly associated with science fiction, Wells wrote extensively in other genres. He wrote on many subjects, including history, society and politics. His first book, offered predictions about what technology and society would look like in the year 2000. Many of which have proven accurate.

Wells went on to pen over fifty novels, numerous non-fiction books, and dozens of short stories. His legacy has had an overwhelming influence on science fiction, and popular culture. Wells died in 1946 at the age of 79.
