Smith gives believers something to ponder when the air chills and bare branches make unsettling shadows against moonlit windowpanes. -- Mike Harden, The Columbus Dispatch, September 22, 2002

What you get from Columbus Ghosts is a pretty straight forward accounting of 14 "historical haunts" (including The Barefoot Fury, The Lady in Gray, Thurber House Ghosts, The Restless Dead, and more) complete with full historical details and "eye-witness" accounts where possible. This is a pretty slim volume, coming in at 96 pages, including source listings for each story, recommended reading and other resources, but I don't feel this detracts from the material in any way. The author is not telling ghost stories by the campfire here, she's relating facts and details of historical haunting in a way that is both factual and compelling. I can see how any of these could be embellished at a party or over a campfire, to make a creepy story to frighten adults and kiddies alike, especially if one is familiar with the Columbus Ohio area or with its history! I enjoyed reading this slim volume and have already requested the "sequel" from the library, as funds allow, I'll definitely be adding this little volume (and its sibling) to my slowly growing collection of material on Ohio history and haunting! I'd recommend it in a heart beat, particularly to those new to the area with paranormal interests! I would also recommend it to young readers (especially in the autumn), as the stories are factual, taken from the local area, and are easy enough to read and comprehend for kid readers, my age recommendation is ages 10 and up, younger children might not be as interested in the historical details. Overall, I give it a solid B, mainly because of the brevity of the book and the list price, for the size, I'd really expect to pay about half as much.
