Overview

As Sam Lewiston backed the horse into the shafts of his backboard and began hitching the tugs to the whiffletree, his wife came out from the kitchen door of the house and drew near, and stood for some time at the horse's head, her arms folded and her apron rolled around them. For a long moment neither spoke. They had talked over the situation so long and so comprehensively the night before that there seemed to be nothing more to say.

Some OCR errors, but still fairly easy to read. One of the stories, 'The Ship That Saw a Ghost', is truly creepy. Several are more humorous than not. And two or three are dramatic, with some deeper philosophical ruminating. Worth a read; nice and short (only 122 pages total).
