Publisher's Summary

I’m an occultist living in a haunted brownstone in upstate New York.

The building is a ghostly double-image of itself, like a picture painted brightly over an older, weirder picture. It’s an equinox place, my mother once said, where dark and light things are equally in power.

I want to tell you, dear strangers, why I was there and what I found.

The three-winged pigeon. My cynical doppelgänger. The loneliness and marvels and confusions of the house. And most of all the ghost living in my bedroom.

We learned how to talk without using sound. She was secretive and scared and difficult to know. But she was also warm and playful, as willing to share the room in silence as to trace vulgar symbols on my hand to get a rise.

She helped me with the hundred-pound centipede, the hostile little man living in my basement, and the emptiness I’d felt since my mother lost her mind.

I tried to help her out of limbo with experiments and spells until I realized if they worked - if we succeeded - I would lose her.

A fascinating take on ghosts and haunting

It kept me spellbound with all the imaginative infirmation about how ghostly interaction.
Performance s were strong and we'll read. Background music was very well done and did not interfere with the story. Great work by all concerned.

Cute!

It could have done with a little more every day understanding. As an example the reader never meets the neighbors or anyone else for that matter but this is a fun little October style book.

Very unusual, in an engrossing and entertaining way. I was impressed with the author's originality and insight.

Like reaching out and connecting

An incredible, nostalgic and touching story, I thoroughly enjoyed every moment, and it left that tell-tale heart ache in my chest after finishing, that tells this will stick with me for a long time. The characters were realistic, loveable, selfish, caring, confused and scared in the most human of ways. I felt connected to them, and quickly loved their personalities.

I only wish for more from Mahoney. A semi-recent addition to my top 3 authors/artists of all time.

Haunted house, warm heart

Okay. I'm ready for Halloween now. This oddly dark and sweet story has completely captivated me and set me in the right frame of mind to fully appreciate this witchy, haunted season—the kind of genre-stretching reset I recommend to everyone. Ghostlove is not horror. Sure, there's creepiness—but it's not cringe-worthy. It actually hit a very child-like part of me that still exists but often needs a nudge: the ability to fully and openly suspend disbelief. I say, just go with it. Let yourself fall in love with these ghosts and dead people and lose yourself in the strange hallways and creaky floorboards of your mind. Get swept up in this spellbinding multi-cast performance and let your imagination be recharged.

Odd sort of Story

I was mesmerize by this story, was quite Odd but I could not stop listening. This book is one that I believe people will either love or hate. Either understand to some extent or not understand at all. A Very different kind of story about at the start , A boy intrigued by the occult because of his close connection with his mother a Librarian. A Friend/Patron who requested hard to find Occult books and his way of looking at the world fascinate the Librarian and she would talk about him and what he would say to the boy!!

Ghostlove

I really enjoyed this book, with its highly detailed description s of the different beings, but, the ending was abrupt.It seems to me, it didn't wrap up the loose ends for me.I was left wanting more.
