NFMC choice 2001-2003, Ghost Story, Piano Solo (Mid-Intermediate level), composed by Alexander Peskanov. "Grace notes, sforzandos, accelerandos, pedal effects and extreme registers combine to paint a colorful aural image of spirits. Ghost Story is almost seven pages long, including a three page da capo, and may provide reading challenges for some students, as it is in C# minor with extra accidentals. Broken octaves in the right hand prefaced by grace notes and accompanied by rolled chords in the left hand that span a tenth lasts for one entire page of the piece. The remainder is highly patterned, and Ghost Story should be fun to play after initial reading challenges are mastered. " -- Clavier Magazine

Ten ghostly tales of the Gilded Age from one of America's finest writers -- Edith Wharton (1862-1937), author of The Age of Innocence, winner of the 1920 Pulitzer Prize.

"Wharton's graceful sentences create dramatic, populous tableaux and peel back layer after layer of artifice and pretense, of what we say and how we wish to appear, revealing the hidden kernel of what human beings are like, alone and together." FRANCINE PROSE

"Despite all her privileges, despite her strenuous socializing, she remained an isolate and a misfit, which is to say, a born writer." JONATHAN FRANZEN

"...Wharton has as much to say to us now as she did to readers in the first half of the [twentieth] century. She is indisputably one of our finest writers." SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

Curl up by the fire and enter the sinister, supernatural world of Montague Rhodes James, the master of the English ghost story. An influence on writers from H. P. Lovecraft to Stephen King, James created tales of understated horror that continue to transfix readers 80 years after his death. Ghost Stories of an Antiquary, Vol. 2 comprises graphic adaptations of four spine-chilling stories by M. R. James: “Number 13,” “Count Magnus,” “Oh, Whistle, and I’ll Come to You, My Lad,” and “The Treasure of Abbot Thomas.” Filled with intrigue, suspense, and intellectual adventure, these enthralling tales of terror plunge readers into a world of creeping dread, where rationality is challenged and the mundane collides with the supernatural. Capturing James’s trademark atmosphere of pervasive disquiet, Leah Moore and John Reppion’s subtly crafted adaptations breathe fresh life into these classic stories about restless phantoms and ill-advised academic exploration.

From New York Times bestselling author Angie Fox

Just because she can see the dead doesn’t mean Verity Long wants to spend her days hunting ghosts. Instead, she’s over the moon to land a marketing job at the local bank…until she finds her new boss dead in the vault. Even her ghost friend, Frankie, knows that's no way to start a career.

Glad to let the police take charge, Verity steps aside, bound and determined to keep her ghost sightings to herself. But when she learns the main suspect in the murder is a very crooked, very dead mobster, Verity knows it's up to her to solve the case.

She teams up with her ghostly gangster buddy Frankie, as well as the irresistible and charming Ellis, as the three of them search haunted mob hideouts, hidden passageways, and historic cemeteries for the facts behind the crime of the century—and a modern-day motive for murder.

Too bad uncovering the truth could very well make Verity the next victim...
