Book Excerpt: 
. . .when he waved them a last good-night from the steps of the Chapeau Rouge.

Dinner was over, and Dennistoun was in his bedroom, shut up alone with his acquisition. The landlady had manifested a particular interest in him since he had told her that he had paid a visit to the sacristan and bought an old book from him. He thought, too, that he had heard a hurried dialogue between her and the said sacristan in the passage outside the salle à manger; some words to the effect that "Pierre and Bertrand would be sleeping in the house" had closed the conversation.

Whatever it was, it resulted in a conviction that there was some one behind him, and that he was far more comfortable with his back to the wall.

Interesting to think that it was written by the same author who wrote Robinson's adventures out in the wilderness...

Great read. I really liked it.

Casper the ghost meets Anne of Green Gables. 'The Woman's Ghost Story' is one of those great heart warming ghost stories one would ever find !. The redemption of a harmless ghost lies in the hands of a young paranormal investigator. Instead of spooking me, this story brought a tear to my eye. Gre...more

As usual with a compilation, hit and miss. There are a couple stories that I think are prime candidates for the Rhetoric of Telling the Ghost Story course I'm composing, The Woman's Tale, but also one that is either (a) a prime example of the principle of nommo, the African conception of the perf...more

Eh. Not the best ghost stories. There were a few good ones, especially a couple that made you think a bit.
