Not necessarily only ghost

Ghost Stories - Peter Washington

I like it that the editor took the broadest sense of ghost story and lump down not only things-that-go-bump-in-the-night (there are several) but also eery or sometimes spiritual circumstances. Combined with a some top notch writers this is a really good compilation that can satisfy not only ghost story lovers but everyone who loves good yarn.


All in all I only have my reservation about Borges' story. Probably reading at the wrong timing too, I remember not being really lucid at the time and couldn't follow the story. Wodehouse, though, hilarious & satisfying. I was doubting some of the authors included in it, but with the boad range interpretation of "ghost stories" it's really working well.


Slightly off-topic, I just loved the book format. Hard-cover pocket size, cover design, ribbon for bookmark. Almost perfect.
