a short story

Scranton October 1894 by W. G. TUTTLE.jpg

Electricity came to Scranton, Pennsylvania.

Reading Railroad came to Scranton.

Irish immigrants came to Scranton.

Irish men, women, and children, who, in their skin sacks, brought their customs, traditions, and beliefs across the Atlantic to America.

Saint Patrick’s Day.

Literature and art.

Celtic festival of Samhain. Halloween. When the veil between the living and dead narrows.
And revengeful ghosts crossover into the world of the living—to take those who have wronged them back with them where the dead dwell.
