This is a really great collection of excellent old ghost stories. My favorites are The Screaming Skull and The Body-Snatcher. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Usually, when I purchase Ghost Story books (short stories) they are "based" on true stories. This is written tales by popular authors from over a large time span. Some literature is hard to follow. I'd rather stay with today's writings.

I found the book to be rather boring and only one to be interesting.
