I very much owe this author and researcher, Karen Ballentine an apology for the above review based on reading the sample. Now after buying a copy, I see the tremendous amount of research gone into compiling an unusual collection of allegedly true ghost stories as reported in actual newspaper accounts. I often find it frustrating to read alleged true accounts based on verbal, legend, personal and sometimes written stories. So many of those feel like part of the story is missing. They could use some folksy writing to at least make them entertaining, spooky, funny or tragic. Having read hundreds if not thousands of stories, true or not, one can get jaded. Now rereading this, I found it entertaining as I took it like reading books on tombstone epitaphs, cemetery history and folklore. Each story was obviously new and different based on the reporters own style and of course the subject.
I left the original review along with the revised one to show a metamorphosis of a reviewer looking for their own fan base and realizing sometimes you have to stop and smell the roses to be fair to authors and readers alike. 99% of the time, I feel I am. This was the 1%. While 70 pages does still seem short, the amount of time was no doubt immense. I hope Karen Ballentine continues her research. I'll be glad to continue to give fair reviews which means buying more of her books.
