In the Past, I especially liked the haunted castle story by Dawn Dalton.

What an impressive collection of stories! I bought it because I'm a fan of several of these authors, figuring the other stories would be filler. All I can say is WOW! I'm not sure I can even choose a favorite. It's a nice eclectic group of fun-to-read ghost stories. Some are scarier than others, but all of them were enjoyable reads. I now have some new authors on my radar that I can't wait to read more from.

The book started off with a great steampunk story about a female ghosthunter / necromancer. I read that in the "Look Inside" and was hooked. I hope the author writes more about Amelia Strangeways; she's my kind of gal. SPIRITED ended with romantic fable set in the afterworld. With its beautiful setting and lyrical prose, "The Story of Late" brought the book to the perfect close. In between there were stories set during the Crusades, in Salem during the witch hunts, and in a haunted castle. Contemporary stories of lost love, making friends, and attending proms (all with ghosts, of course) filled the middle of the book--along with a trip to Norway and a scary Viking dude. The end of the book had some cool futuristic stories. A spaceship and a gamer's world (with some amazing augmented reality--3D pics that pop off the page) rounded out the selections.

A collection well-worth picking up especially as all proceeds go to benefit literacy.

I wasn't expecting to enjoy all the stories in this collection, but I did. Originally I bought it because I love Maria V. Snyder's books. I started with her Study books, The Study Series Bundle and moved on to her Glass series Storm Glass (Glass, Book 1). So when I saw this anthology, I bought it so I could read her short story, "New Girl". I'm also a fan of Judith Graves Skinned books, Under My Skin (Skinned) and Second Skin (Skinned, Book 2), so I wanted to read her steampunk story in this anthology.

I thought I'd just skim the other stories, but I was totally sucked in from the first page. Each of the stories was different, but they were all well written. I can't even choose a favorite. "New Girl" was a fun read with an unexpected twist and "Strangeways vs. the Wraith" was so well-plotted and intriguing that I zipped right through and wanted to read more. Amelia Strangeways just jumped right off the page. I hope she'll be in other stories, she's such a great character.

Spirited was divided into Past, Present, and Future. Each section was enjoyable in a different way, but they were all so good, it was hard to pick a favorite. In the Past, I especially liked the haunted castle story by Dawn Dalton. It had some steampunk touches that fit well with the Strangeways story. A must-read in the Present section is the "The Cold One" by Candace Havens with it's scary Viking dude.

This anthology is definitely a double dose of delicious. Some of the top authors around, Candy Havens (One of my fav's) and the money goes to a worthy cause. This is a delightful treat for short story lovers and this is the perfect time of the year. A must read.

Are you ready to enter a world of spirits and take your chances? Not all of them are nice...

What caught my eye about this book was the fact that it was short stories by a variety of authors. I enjoy different writing styles and different plot concepts, so I was interested in seeing how they handled this central theme of ghosts.

The stories ranged from historical to science fiction, avenging spirits to kind spirits. Several stories focused on putting the ghosts to rest. Each author did a good job describing the setting and making this reader interested in their characters. The words flowed well and I enjoyed the read. However, I would like to have seen either more variety or perhaps a couple of more throughly fleshed out stories. It just seemed something was lacking.

Once I started reading this book, I didn't want to stop. I went from story to story and each author gave me a short treat to read. There was a combination of scary and sweet in the collection. My personal favorites were the science fiction stories. They provided a different form of ghost story and even seemed a bit more believable because they were fantasy.

If you enjoy ghost stories, this is a nice selection that's easy to read and doesn't get too extreme at horror or romance. If you think you aren't into ghost stories, this is a good way to sample them and see which types appeal to you. I'm sure you'll find something to enjoy and then you'll have opened a new genre to expand your reading. This collection has something for everyone.

Strangeways: 4*s This was a steampunk story. At first the language felt forced but this quickly went away. I liked Amelia and Warren and would be willing to read more about them.

The Senet Box: 3.5*s Interesting.

Stained: 4.5*s I really liked this story. I was immediately drawn into it. It was sad but the message of the story was hopeful.

Thread of the Past: 4*s Kept my attention but left me with a lot of questions at the end.

The Cold One: 5*s This book had a really interesting concept. I definitely want to check out more from this author.

Death Becomes Her: 3*s This was just ok. I liked how it started, but didn't really think it progressed as well.

Oast House: 4*s This was a very compelling story. I liked it.

New Girl: 5*s I could be biased because this is by one of my favorite authors, bug this story was really good. It kept me reading and was short and complete.

Aftermath - 3.5*s I liked this story because it didn't necessarily feel like a short story and I could nit tell where it was going. The boyfriend kind of felt like an unnecessary part if the story. I was also a little confused on some parts. But it was well written so I would check out other stuff by this author.

Phantom of the prom - 5*s I really liked this story. It was well developed and the characters were likable. It had a good story line. I would definitely check out out stories by this author.

Night Queen - 4*s This was pretty good. It had a lot of tension throughout the story which kept me reading.

To Hel and Back - 5*s I really liked this story. The plot was different and interesting. I definitely want to read more by this author. I don't have a webcam so the pictures were pointless but they didn't seem that necessary.

The Story of Late - 5*s This was nice. It had a Gothic fairy tale feel to it.
