Yet another entry in the "please check that your bridegroom is alive before you marry him" sweepstakes.

Lots of Child ballads have this moral too. Was accidental marriage to the undead that much of a social hazard back then?

Thanks for the stories -- I go through books of ghost stories like mad, but while I know a few of these ones I'm obviously very deficient on the mid-19th century variety. I look forward to going through them properly tomorrow.


I want to add this gem from The Public Domain Review - a novel dictated by Mark Twain from beyond the grave. Via Ouija board, no less.
