Bit of a long shot, admittedly, but many many years ago a community history group in Belfast put out a series of 60-page pamphlets on local ghost stories.

Some of them I bought up at the time, others I've acquired since through online auctions and the occasional lucky find at second-hand markets.

The one I'm still missing is 'Ulster Ghost Stories Part Two', and it was published by the Glenravel Local History Project c.1992/93.

I've never seen a copy, or found any trace of one for sale online, but it was listed in their available back issues for a few years so I'm reasonably confident it exists.

It looks to be the same format as Part 1 (which I have) - A4 sized, monochrome throughout with a mildly coloured paper cover, and 60 pages with two staples holding it together:

I believe I have read most of the stories within UGS Pt2, since the series author (Joe Baker) put together a 'Haunted Belfast' book a few years ago, and seems to have reused pretty much all the stories he previously published under the Glenravel imprint.

But there's a few which I can tantalisingly make out on the UGS Pt2 front cover ('Old Emma', 'The Grip Of A Ghost') that aren't in the collected edition and, as a completionist, I'd be interested in tracking down a copy of this one.

So, just wondering if anyone happens to have a copy kicking around that they no longer require - or if you do but don't wish to sell, could even provide a precis of the stories in that edition?

Hey, if it's not here, it's maybe not anywhere...

Many thanks!
