在短篇小說" A Recurring Dream"（來自Arlo T. Janssen的《來自許多國家的不尋常的故事》 ）中，一個名叫金伯利·克拉克的角色被一名老人指控為幽靈。
The man opens the door a little and looks at her. "What do you want here?" he asks. "Why don't you go away?"
Kim doesn't know what to say. But she does want to talk to him.
"I—I see—I see that this house is for sale," she stammers.
"Yes it is. But I'm sure you don't want to buy it!"
"Why do you say that?"
"Because—uh—because a ghost hunts this house."
"A ghost haunts this pretty little house?"
"Yes, it comes almost every night now."
Kim tries hard to think of something to say. "Do—uh—do you know who the ghost is?" she stammers.
"Yes, I do now."
"Who is it?"
In a loud whisper he exclaims, "It's you!" Then he closes the door.
