9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Naoise O'hannain on November 2, 2002
Format: Paperback
Run of the mill contemporary ghost stories, good for a train journey or holiday, suitable for over 14 year's old.
Definitely NOT in the same category/league as his other opus - Celtic Myth by Bob Curran ISBN: 0304358983, which set
the standard. I had been expecting something along the lines of Celtic myth - a selection of historic stories, including
some historical context. How sadly disappointed I was, there was nothing regarding the old Irish legend of
Abhartach & Droch Fuil ('bad blood' in Irish Gaelic), which could be one of the ingredients for two Irish men's more
famous novels, nor for that matter on 'Feile na Marbh' (feast of the dead or Holaween to the Americans).
Thank god Bram Stoker & Sheridan shifted the blame elsewhere, (Transalvenia) hope nobody notices.

Hello,
I liked the book yes the storys could be a little better but as the writer is re telling legends there is little that could be added to the storys but definitely good and explains why bram stoker came up with his ideas
