    A collection of ghostly tales that I ve slowly savored on these cold Winter nights.I m left wondering if King read How Fear Departed From the Long Gallery and if that was his inspiration for The Twins in his book The Shining Hmmm something to ponder upon.

    Found this randomly but almost like I was being drawn to it on a shelf in Borders before they sadly closed their doors and had to have it It looks like an antique, and someday I imagine it will be old enough and book collectors will consider this book, and this particular edition, very antique I loved this book I read it during a rough time in my life and it was very much an escape I would read it by candlelight every night until I turned the last page out of over 600 The Appendices ar Found this randomly but almost like I was being drawn to it on a shelf in Borders before they sadly closed their doors and had to have it It looks like an antique, and someday I imagine it will be old enough and book collectors will consider this book, and this particular edition, very antiqu...

    this is an anthology of ghost stories from all over the world, from the late 1700s to the present day the title is misleading, however some are creepier than others, some are comical, some are love stories, etc some are not scary at all but it s a nice book to pick up if you re in the mood for it.

    This was a fair mix of very good and mediocre ghost stories The best I already had ineclectic anthologies The problem, I think for me, was the Editor, Marvin Kaye, is a science fiction, fantasy writer so half of the stories he included were written by authors of that genre and, if I may say so without offending, these writers are not of the same caliber of authors of classic literature Although I...

    This book is a compilation of some fine ghost tales from various times and places Put together by Marvin Kaye, this book features stories from some of the greats like Charles Dickens and Oscar Wilde, some traditional tales, and some great anonymous stories.Kaye includes a tale of his own in the mix, but rightly puts it in the appendix instead of within the main text, not wanting to give the wrong impression There is also a list of haunted locations, a bibliography for further reading, and a pi This book is a compilation of some fine ghost tal...

    This is a surprisingly strong collection of ghost stories They avoid much of the tired tropes of ghost stories and are incredibly varied and unique, never repeating themselves My only two complaints of the book are that it is slightly too long and there is not enough world view There are many stories that take place in different parts of the world but they are told, typically, by an Englishman who has traveled there and is giving his perspective Rather than a story which is original to the r This is a surprisingly strong collection of ghost stories They avoid much of the tired tropes of ghost stor...

    I first read this when I was about 11 years old and absolutely loved it I decided to dig it out and reread it The quality is wildly variable, but as a general rule the late 19th early 20th c stories are pretty good, some of them quite good, and the contemporary ones range from kind of awful to outright embarrassingly awful There are also some true accounts, anduhyeah I see why they re all anonymous Mixed bag, but that s what I expected Worth spending a couple bucks on for the good I first read this when I was about 11 years old and absolutely loved it I decided to dig it out and reread it The quality is wildly variable, but as a general rule the late 19th early 20th c stories are pretty good, some of them quite good, and the contemporary ones range from kind of awful to outright embarrassingly awful There are also some true accounts, anduhyeah I see why they re all anonymous Mixed bag, but that s what I expected Worth spending a couple bucks on for the good stories, if you want so...
