Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The Ghost Story Workshop presents Dead on Demand: The Best of Ghost Story Weekend, with hair-raising work by 20 writers, including the editor, Elizabeth Engstrom, as well as Banjo Bandolas, Cindy Foster and Dixie Gaede. Tobin Blake's "Grim's Redemption" tells of a dying daughter, her distraught father and a visit by death, in the shape of a man named Grim, that yields unexpected results.

Library Journal
At Siltcoos Lake on the foggy coast of Oregon, writers have been gathering for a decade for the Ghost Story Weekend. The assignment is simple: write a ghost story before you leave. Editor Engstrom (Lizzie Borden) has compiled 20 of the best stories to emerge from those weekends, produced by such writers as Christina Lay, Lynn Bohart, Alan M. Clark, and Susan Palmer. Many of the stories are set on that same foggy coast, but the similarity ends there. The stories range from terrifying Windigos in the backwoods to haunted rolling pins in cozy kitchens, from adulterous husbands to lost twins, from teenage ghosts to ghosts who switch places with the living, and from the sentimental to the amusing to the totally scary. All the pieces are well written, and the variety of voices and subjects makes turning each page a new adventure. This book is a treat, with stories that will haunt for a long time, and is recommended for high school, public, and academic libraries.

    Wonderful collection

    The Best of Ghost Story Weekend is a wonderful collection of spooky short stories. All the stories are imaginative without being unbelievable. I was surprised and pleased to find out that this was some of the authors' first published work. It is great to have such variety and quality in one book. It is a definate must-read for anyone who enjoys scary stories and tales from 'the other side.' My favorite story is 'Pia.'

    Chilling Tales

    The talent of some people never ceases to amaze me. I thoroughly enjoyed reading through all these short imaginative tales.Of course, some were better than others, but all fun to read. I can hardly wait to take this book with me on my next long airplane trip so I can sit and read uninterrupted and let my mind wander into the world 'beyond'. I especially enjoyed the selection by Sandra Aikman entitled 'Pia'. Is it a true story? I got the feeling while I was reading Pia, that it was not a make-believe ghost story. Some of this MUST be true. Good writing and good reading.

    Finally a Ghost Story that's more than just gore!

    I was drawn into the flavor of the west and nature many of these stories had. My favorite was 'One Last Soul' by Banjo Bandolas. I was so captivated I didn't want it to end. Give me more! Great book.
