horror/suspense story or novel/novella?
Does anyone recognize this?
"He remembers it was a ghost story about a man who takes in a tramp on a very wet night. The tramp sits in front of the fire, but never dries out and keeps dripping water. They talk for the night, but in the morning, the tramp is gone. The man then passes by a graveyard and sees the trampís name on a headstone. He thinks the author was JB Priestley or Poe, but thatís mostly a guess."
I work in a library and this question was asked of someone working with me. We don't know it. Maybe someone here knows? The borrower said he read it approx 30+ years ago so it's def. not recent.
