At the railway station, I came across a bookshop selling a dozen or so book on Shimla. After having read the preface I got to know that it is the second in the series and the moment I got acquainted with this fact, I immediately began my search for the prequel. Finally, my quest landed me at Mall road and it was here that I bought this book. Ghost Stories of Shimla Hills is a collection of all things supernatural in and around the Shimla hills, be it haunted bauris, mansions or benches, churails or spirits of English men and women who once walked the city of Shimla. It is a collection of stories of various encounters of citizens of Shimla including tourists with the many spirits which have made their abode in these hills. The author does not express her views in terms of whether she believes or does not believe in what is written, but surely by the sole virtue of her narrations, makes us believe in all the stories that form this book.
As summarized by Frank Coffman for a course in popular imaginative literature, they were:  The pretense of truth No gratuitous bloodshed or sex No "explanation of the machinery" Setting: "those of the writer's and reader's own day" The introduction of pulp magazines in the early s created new avenues for ghost stories to be published, and they also began to appear in publications such as Good Housekeeping and The New Yorker.
The ghost is wearing stylised plate armour in 17th-century style, including a morion type helmet and tassets. Depicting ghosts as wearing armour, to suggest a sense of antiquity, was common in Elizabethan theatre. In the midth century, the works of Seneca were rediscovered by Italian humanists , and they became the models for the revival of tragedy. Seneca's influence is particularly evident in Thomas Kyd 's The Spanish Tragedy and Shakespeare 's Hamlet , both of which share a revenge theme, a corpse-strewn climax, and ghosts among the cast.
Armour, being out-of-date by the time of the Renaissance, gave the stage ghost a sense of antiquity. Ann Jones and Peter Stallybrass, in Renaissance Clothing and the Materials of Memory, point out, "In fact, it is as laughter increasingly threatens the Ghost that he starts to be staged not in armor but in some form of 'spirit drapery'.
This is a striking departure both from the ghosts of the Renaissance stage and from the Greek and Roman theatrical ghosts upon which that stage drew. The most prominent feature of Renaissance ghosts is precisely their gross materiality. They appear to us conspicuously clothed. The king then awakens to find the ghost transformed into a beautiful woman. One of the key early appearances by ghosts was The Castle of Otranto by Horace Walpole in , considered to be the first gothic novel.
Ghost stories, unlike Gothic fiction, usually take place in a time and location near to the audience of the story.
The modern short story emerged in Germany in the early decades of the 19th century. Kleist 's The Beggar Woman of Locarno, published in , and several other works from the period lay claim to being the first ghost short stories of a modern type. The Vosges mountain range is the setting for most ghost stories by the French writing team of Erckmann-Chatrian. One of the earliest writers of ghost stories in English was Sir Walter Scott.
His ghost stories, "Wandering Willie's Tale" , first published as part of Redgauntlet and The Tapestried Chamber eschewed the "Gothic" style of writing and helped set an example for later writers in the genre.
