Venice 

Am enjoying The Haunted Hotel by Wilkie Collins in a vintage classic edition - all very dark, ghostly and damp. The Wings of the Dove - Henry James is presently serialised on BBC Radio 4. I've caught atmospheric snatches of it over the last week - a tale of thwarted love and money ... 

Really chilling is Don't Look Now - a novella by Daphne Du Maurier. I saw the film as a child featuring Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland and was terrified!

Venice is so beautiful yet stirs the twisted, dark and supernatural part of our humanity.
