Whether a visitor to, or a native of, the great and ancient metropolis of London, the listener will be drawn in by this book's strange and sometimes horrendous tales about this global melting pot of a city. It discusses in detail some of the demons, ghosts, and life-essence stealers who inhabit London's netherworld and call it their home.
This book's tales of hauntings and terror deal exclusively with that hugely haunted area of London known as the West End which has the famous Piccadilly Circus at its centre. In it, listeners will find spine-chilling stories about hideous and malevolent tree-hanging soul stealers, a ghostly duchess with a very important message and other fascinating tales about the West End's many restless souls who are doomed to haunt forever, the place of their tragic and often violent deaths.
Paradoxically, as with life, so with ghost stories, and there is indeed nothing new under the sun with respect to the hauntings visited. Many, if not all these stories have been told and retold by interpreters of the spirit world over many decades, if not centuries. My specific aim here, apart from telling these stories in what I hope is a new, entertaining, and instructive way, is to contrast and compare the different versions of them that have been written over the years. In doing this I hope to enable listeners to consider, discuss, and maybe even investigate the stories for themselves, as they examine their history, their contradictions, and their facts, or the lack of them.
