Overview

FAMOUS MODERN GHOST STORIES....A COLLECTION OF 15 FAMOUS GHOST STORIES! 300 PAGES IN PRINT! A MUST READ IF YOU LOVE GHOST STORIES!

Most of the stories are drawn from American publications of the time, the Harper brothers gaining the biggest slice of the publishing credits. Gems for me are:

* The Willows by Algernon Blackwood, more a novella than a short story but one of the great horror stories of the 20th Century.
* The Beast With Five Fingers by W.F. Harvey - A very creepy story about a possessed severed hand. This story spawned two feature films.
* The Woman at Seven Brothers by Wilbur Daniel Steele - Very atmospheric ghost story set on a remote lighthouse. I admit I have a love of lighthouses and relish any story well told from its windy staircases, lamp-rooms and common rooms. This story is a little traditional but still well told.
* Ligeia by Edgar Allan Poe - Poe shows off his sumptuous use of the English language, penning on the layers of creepiness with aplomb. Some of Poe's stories are worth reading just for the use of language alone: e.g. 'blacker than the raven wings of midnight'. Brilliant.

The rest of the stories range from quite good to quite trite. There are also a few others worth a read like.... Myla Jo Closser's At the Gate. The image of all the faithful dogs waiting patiently at the gates of Heaven for their owners to arrive is quite moving. None of the dogs will go through without their owners.

    for fans of the older ghost's

    I have always liked the older gost stories, and this book has some in it that I have not read in quite a while. These are the type you need to read late at night, and everything is quite.
