The Love Talker, Deborah Pryor’s tale of witchery in the mountains of Virginia, is abundant with apparitions and an eerie and sensual atmosphere. Two women, 14-year-old Gowdie and her mother Bun, live together in a remote cabin in the woods where they wage a private war against oppressive forest forces: an impish, red-headed witch and the lustful demon, The Love Talker.
In John Pielmeier’s A Ghost Story, two hikers, Oswald and Hackett, seek shelter from a winter blizzard in an isolated Maine cabin. They are joined by a mysterious girl, Soma. To pass the time, the three tell each other ghost stories that suddenly becomes real in the blood-curdling climax.
