Editorial Reviews

Review

Eighteen stories in this powerful collection blend well-known contributors such as Ray Bradbury with lesser-knowns, surveying lighthouse horror stories in all their incarnations. Readers who relish stormy surroundings and sea monsters will especially appreciate the diversity of this presentation. -- Midwest Book Review

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Craig Alan Loewen on July 2, 2002
Format: Paperback
Throughout the years, lighthouses have served as backdrops for dark, gothic tales of solitary, sea-based horror. If you like a good chilling read and you like lighthouses and the sea, this collection of 17 tales was assembled just for you. Though well-read readers in the genre will have already read Ray Bradbury's The Fog Horn which inspired the movie, Beast From 50,000 Fathoms, the rest of the tales will be new to even the old connoisseur of tales of dark suspense.
The editors take us on a world-wide tour which includes St. Cecilia on the southern coast of England and its keeper slowly going mad from the flowing water that surrounds him. We visit the Isle of the Wise Virgin lighthouse in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence to hear a tale about why one doesn't steal from the dead. On a remote island in the Scottish Hebrides, four men and one woman trapped in their lighthouse fight off waves of monsters straight from H.P. Lovecraft while on the coast of Guiana, lighthouse keepers struggle against giant rats. Ghosts, monsters, murder and madness ... they're all here.
Nowadays with the advent of technology, lighthouses are falling into disrepair and neglect, but these 17 tales will keep the wonder and mystery alive when the wind outside is blowing the surf up.

Format: Paperback
My third love is lighthouses, after horror and hauntings. This fits right in! OF course, not "frightening" exactly, but spooky true accounts to read on a rainy night all alone! Good history and atmoshpere. One of the few good lighthouse haunting books I own that is good!

I found several of the short stories to be very entertaining reading. The stories revolve around the darker side of lighthouses.
