Cornelius Clarke

Author Cornelius Clarkeabout this book: Gary Tinsley returns home in the dead of night after a lifetime away. Not wanting to awaken his parents at such a late hour, dripping with rain, he decides to take a trip down memory lane and visits his old school. But the past comes flooding back in ways he'd have preferred not to remember; memories of a certain teacher, Jack Reilly, a tyrant of the classroom, a cigar-chewing, sneering, drunkard and sadistic bully, who liked nothing more than subjecting his pupils to unwarranted punishments. But the red-brick building seems to hold more than memories. Gary becomes terrified that this most monstrous of teachers is also wandering the dark empty corridors, waiting for his moment to pounce, but he knows this can't be, for Jack Reilly is dead.

This is a short story from the author of We are but Shadows. The school itself is based on the very one that the author attended and once stood outside it late at night and wondered what ghosts it might hold.
