2.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Over 25 short story masterpieces from writers such as Louis de Bernieres and Ian Rankin - modern literary tales to chill the blood.

This spine-chilling new anthology of 20th and 21st century tales by big name writers is in the best traditions of literary ghost stories.

It is just a little over a hundred years ago that the most famous literary ghost story, The Turn of the Screw by Henry James, was published and in the intervening years a great many other distinguished writers have tried their hand at this popular genre - some basing their fictional tales on real supernatural experiences of their own.

It was rather hard work to finish this book - some of the stories are really not very good - but I'm glad I did. The last part - "Haunting Times: Tales of Unease" is easily the best.
