I don't typically read scary stories...I don't like to be scared! However, I came across this book and read the stories because they were set in southeast Alaska, where I live. I found the short stories to be diverse, very imaginative, very well written, and SCARY. I can imagine that if a story from this book were read around the campfire, there would be more than a few people who wouldn't want to leave the fire and go to sleep. These weren't stories with gory details (yuk), but stories that took fears that lurk in the corners of our brain in the dark in the wild and bring life to those fears. I definitely won't read this just before a kayak trip...those deep dark tangled forests behind some of the beach are already scary enough sometimes.
I especially loved the unexpected plot twists found in several of the stories such as "Ghost Wanted" and "Shy Ghosts Dancing". Some stories were both funny and scary. None of the stories are predictable, and many were very thought provoking and stuck in my head for quite a while. Many were so well written that seemed like they must have really happened to the author. I also really liked the depth of the stories. These stories weren't just about scary stuff, but about how people feel fear and how they react. A great book.
