Original title
The Inexperienced Ghost

"An inexperienced ghost" or "The Story of an inexperienced ghost", "The Story of one ghost", "An unsuccessful adventure of one spirit", "The Story of an inexperienced ghost" (orig. "The Inexperienced Ghost"– is a mystical short story by H. G. Wells, first published in The Strand Magazine, 1902, Vol. XXIII: No. 135, March, pp. 337-345.

A certain Clayton tells his friends a story about his meeting with a ghost.

He met the ghost outside his room at the club, returning after lunch. The ghost tried to scare him, but did it very clumsily. Clayton reproached the ghost that he was on the territory of the club, while not being a member of it. The ghost replied that he would gladly disembodied and went into his ghostly world, but he does not succeed. Clayton, along with the ghost, repeated the passes necessary for the transition with their hands until the ghost disappeared.

Clayton decides to show his friends these passes and find out if he will move into the spirit world. As soon as he makes the last gesture, he immediately drops dead.

In the present work only one Ghost who tries to scare Clayton, and then teaches him the passes that help the Ghost go into his world. The Ghost is described as frail and stupid. The author makes the assumption that that's what he was in life. When the Ghost long not been able to get into your world of despair he cried.

Description Ghost in the story:

It was all transparent, so whitish. Right through the back you can see it was a window at the far end of the corridor. But not only throughout his appearance, even in his posture there was something weak.


Frail. You know, a thin neck, with two hollows behind the ears — here and here. Small flat head, spikey hair, ugly ears. And shoulders bad, narrower hips; turn-down collar, cheap jacket, pants baggy, worn over the heels.

The author does not tells anything about how and why the Ghost was in club Sirena, nor the reasons why he decided to scare visitors.
