Great post - I really enjoyed it. I enjoy 'true' ghost stories very much too. I've based a few of my own stories on them. I love M R James, but I don't like too neat an explanation of a ghost. I once met a policeman who told me there was a street on his beat where, at night, a man was reguarly seen standing in a shop doorway. There was nothing notable about him: he was just an ordinary man in quite ordinary clothes.
