  • August 18, 2010Coming from the same publisher with a justified world class reputation for quality as The Oxford Book of English Ghost Stories, which I recently finished reading and reviewing, this collection is edited by one of the co editors of the latter work Not surprisingly, these volumes display a similar philosophy, and high standard, of selection, and a certain overlap of literary territory no less than 13 of the included contributors here are represented in the earlier book though always [...]


  • I picked this collection up purely for the Robert Aickman story, since his books are almost nowhere to be found in the States I then went back and started reading from the beginning Am enjoying the various ghost stories from writers like Graham Greene, Edith Wharton and F Scott Fitzgerald.


  • There are a whopping thirty three stories to be found in this anthology, ordered chronologically from 1910 to 1994 Two fine tales bookend the entire collection E Nesbit s In the Dark is the opener, while the grand finale is Jane Gardam s hackle raising The Meeting House, completing an entire book of short but memorable tales Like most anthologies, there will be something for everyone here, and also like most anthologies, it s a mixed bag of good, great, excellent, and oh my god yes And while for [...]


  • I think I can confidently say that this is the best collection of horror stories I ve ever read There were a few weak stories in the bunch, but the good ones than made up for it Not all of them were frightening Some were humorous, others heart warming The mix of stories was a pleasant surprise Standouts included In the Dark by E Nesbit The Blackmailers By Algernon Blackwood Yesterday Street by Thomas Burke Smoke Ghost By Fritz Leiber Jr Three Miles Up By Elizabeth Jane Howard Close Behind Him B [...]


  • 3.5 starsThe introduction, were I to give it a rating, would be 5 stars I especially enjoyed the bit detailing the connection between ghost stories and social issues.Favorites and my recommendations for those who dislike reading anthologies straight through Night Fears by L P Hartley A Short Trip Home by F Scott Fitzgerald Yesterday Street by Thomas Burke Smoke Ghost by Fritz Leiber The Tower by Marghanita Laski Poor Girl by Elizabeth Taylor A Woman Seldom Found by William Sansom Portobello Road [...]


  • Great read This book was a culmination of many interesting ghost stories wrong throughout the twentieth century, including one by F Scott Fitzgerald I thoroughly enjoyed reading each story and seeing how the style of writing changed over the course of the century.


  • Its a mixed bag, like anything like this will be, but some brilliant stories in this book William Trevor The Only StoryFritz Leiber The Smoke GhostF Scott Fitzgerald The Short Trip HomeAny of the above would be worth the price of the whole book really.


  • I was pretty iffy about this book I haven t had the best track record with ghost stories But this one was really good I couldn t believe it I highly recommend this book to anyone whose into ghost horror stories.


  • A great mix of short stories, from your scary stories to the unconventional so didn t seem like your stereotypical ghost story book, still not to be read before bed though
