Suddenly a brilliant thought struck me. I wrote out a letter, stating exactly what I wanted and what I did not want and requesting the readers of it either to forward me ghost stories or else to put me in the way of getting them: this letter was sent to the principal Irish newspapers on October 27 and published on October 29 and following days. On October 30, the first answers reached me. Within a fortnight I had sufficient material to make a book; within a month I had so much material that I could pick and choose -- and more was promised. Irish fairy and folklore there were in abundance but there was no book of ghosts.

Nice collection of ghost stories told in a fairly conversational tone (perhaps a more accurate title would be "Irish Anecdotes of the Supernatural"?) A very enjoyable read.

It is interesting to read how ghost hunters and researchers of the last century and a half plied their trade. Healthy dose of skepticism and debunking thrown in to maintain balance

Its a fun read. I really kinda want to visit these places but the auther is very careful about not revealing the exact whereabouts of these plases.

I thought this would be a good book. It started off ok i guess but then became very dry... didnt like the fact names werent used... mrs B. Or mr. B--- it was stupid. This made it hard to get into the book.... all and all if i could go back i wish i hadnt got this book... had to force myself to finish it.... was soooo slow and some of the storys after a while just seemed to repeat.... didnt like at all....
