"The Moor Road" by Glenn McGoldrick

Jack is at the cemetery in Thornaby, in England’s northeast. The priest says a few words. Jack’s wife Kate is crying and being comforted by her sister. Jack looks around at the people gathers. Familiar faces all – friends, relatives, acquaintances. They are all there for the burial service. 

Jack’s burial service. 


“Sometimes I get the feeling that he’s still here,” Kate says to her sister.

The Moor Road
 is a short story by British author Glenn McGoldrick and part of his Dark Teesside series of short stories. It’s a ghost story that is less about haunting and more about families, marriages, mistakes, and regret.


Writing since 2013, McGoldrick specializes in short stories. He’s worked for both land-based casinos and cruise ships for a time, basing many of his stories on those experiences. His stories are dark, gritty, often involve a twist, and inevitably open insights into the human psyche. And his characters run the gamut of good, bad, and something in between, and often find themselves moving far beyond the boundaries of acceptable behavior. He lives in northeastern England.
