Still four stars, in despite of my complaining at the beginning.I read the stories in chronological order which is how they re printed in the book , and honestly, until Charles Dickens, I wasn t sure if I was going to like this Half of the first six stories do not feature a ghost at all, and in the case of The Story of Mary Ancel by William Makepeace Thackeray, I was completely baffled it was in a ghost stories book at all, even if you stretch the meaning of ghost to eerie Either it s just reall [...]

A mixed bag of stories, some are really good, some are average, and as at least one other reader has noted some don t have a ghost in them at all The editor chose them based on not being horror so they aren t that scary, but some will make you think, and most are entertaining At any rate it is always nice to read something written in a different era.

I bought this ghost stories collection from Blackwell s for 3 , and since I love good spooky tales, I thought that I should know of the classic ones However, this book is a 50 50 Half of the stories weren t even supernatural and were quite boring, but there are some good examples, like The Tell Tale Heart by Poe of course , An Account of Some Strange Disturbances in Aungier Street and Narrative of a Ghost of a Hand by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu one of the best horror story writers of that era , Th [...]

This is a great sampling of ghost and general horror stories from the early 1800s on although most of them do involve the spirits of our dearly departed, there are one or two that are just creepy or disconcerting without all of the shrouds and rattling chains Worth a read just for The Canterville Ghost s inclusion, which is an old favorite of mine and will have you cackling out loud rather than hiding under the blankets If you re a folklore and horror buff like me, you may also recognize a few o [...]

It s hard to rate this book since the stories are completely different from one another Some do not even seem to have anything supernatural hinted at Anyway, some of these I really liked others not so much I guess three is a good average for this book though it s of a 2 1 2 starsThere are a couple stories that made chuckle something I wasn t expecting to read here but most were the typical spooky at the time stories so do with this information as you will.

A mixed collection with some stories I could never recommend but some classics amongst them including Wilke Collins The Traveller s Story of a Terribly Strange Bed and Laura by HH Munro Also included is the incomparable Oscar with The Canterville Ghost The book is worth keeping on your shelf for that alone a laugh out loud ghost story.

Not all of these are ghost stories despite the title, some of them are actually crime stories not surprisingly the best stories are mostly by the authors who continue to be famous 100 years later Some of my favorites were the two stories by Charles Dickens In general I don t enjoy Dickens longer writing, but in the constrained space of a short story his writing is really good In particular I liked The Story of the Bagman s Uncle which has a delightful 17th century atmosphere to the ghostly visio [...]

Not all of these ghost stories are Victorian or Edwardian not all of them are ghost stories A lot of big names are included Charles Dickens, whose short stories are less tedious than his novels, but not much Edgar Allen Poe, whose Tell Tale Heart may or may not qualify as a ghost story Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, who, for all his influence, can t write for shit c and Collings deserves credit for managing to include four female authors out of nineteen these short story collections are usually penis [...]

Some stories are interesting engaging some, well not so much.Some are classic unforgettable Litature, like the telltale heart others Are bitter sweet like Phemie s Story.All in all it was quite a good read, there defiantly was not a Ghostly part in the whole thing, in fact majority if not all the book is quite Ghost Free if you chance upon a copy in a second hand book shop, you should maybe give it a goYou might be delightfully un spooked Read this Review others on my website Vist Lace Vintage B [...]

This is an anthology of stories, some were very good, like the Wilde s one, which was funny even if it wasn t scary at all Some stories don t really are ghost stories, they just talked about strange things, and others, that you shouldn t read alone in your bedroom at midnight.Whether it be for people who like happy ending or to be scared or people who want to laugh, this collection of stories is a reliable source for ghost story lovers.

While it does contain a few brilliant stories, The Canterville Ghost and The Tell Tale Heart being old favorites that were a lot of fun to re read, I cannot say that the majority of the stories were particularly engaging nor particularly scary Most of them were just dull, with the exception of Markheim , Bagman s Uncle and the amusing The Spectre of Tappington.

So far, I could only finish The tale of the bagman s uncle by the Englend s most well known writer Not the average Charles Dickens style one would expect, but it was an action packed short story Dickens shows us what high adventure might be found in the company of ghostly passengers of antique coaches

Would have been better called Classic Victorian Edwardian Fireside Tales or some such since about a third of the stories have no ghost in them The editor has deliberately gone for a mix of styles, with quite a few humorous stories, some melodramas and only about half really trying to be scary.

A great read on chill fall and winter nights Not all this book s stories are on ghosts however, some are about murder which is personally less to my taste The Wilkie Collins and the dark humoured Oscar Wilde stories were my favorites.

After reading the table of contents, I opted for the Oscar Wilde ghost story As expected, it was witty and not quite as predictable as the others might be But the rest of the stories in the book seems less whimsical, so I called it a day.

Some brilliantly odd and quirky efforts that appealed greatly to my love of both short stories and dark fiction, my favourite being The Haunted Dolls House Underneath several unsuspecting and conservative titles lay some real challenges Good choices, Rex Collings.

A good collection of ghost tales, not that I m a huge reader of spooky type stories For me, the highlight was of course Oscar Wilde s, with the wonderful ghost who is trying and failing to scare off those loud and brash Americans.

A bit of fun Not all the stories are purely ghostie some are a little spookie, others are pure ghost story and others just good, period literary enjoyment.

I do like reading stories from it now and again but that s probably because they are not frightening or even close to eerie so I can sleep pretty good no matter how many of them I read.
