Randolph Carter

Guran delivers a good batch of stories about my favorite horror trope the ghost Given that it is a time worn sub genre there is a pretty good amount of transcendence here that bodes well for the modern ghost story There isn t really a Jamesian story here so if that is what you are looking for, move on Often in a reprint anthology with this many stories there are a few stinkers I usually look at the author bios for the writers I don t recognize right off the bat There were a number here that, and [...]


Stan James

Ghosts Recent Hauntings is one of the better horror collections I ve read in the past few years The stories are, true to the title, all relatively recent in terms of previous publication, and while editor Paula Guran confesses to fudging a bit sometimes on ghosts being the subject matter, the exceptions are still consistently good stories There s even some local flavor in The Castle , set in a hotel in Vancouver s Downtown Eastside.The stories cover a broad range of styles and tone, from traditi [...]

Like most anthologies, this is a mixed bag of quality some pretty good stories, some okay, many not readable at all and many of the readable ones seem to have no point Scanning the other reviews, I saw the word literary than once, and I think that s probably accurate and part of the problem Rather than simply telling a good, spooky yarn, many of the authors obfuscate the points of their stories with incoherent images and an attempt at high falutin language.But it s not all bad Sarah Monette s h [...]


Elizabeth Brenner

What a fantastic collection a decade of the best ghost stories by the best writers I enjoyed 90% of the stories, discovered new writers and revisited old favorites Over 400 pages of chilling and horrific goodness.


Dharia Scarab

Another mixed bag anthology So good, some bad, a lot of mediocre.Since I don t normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here s the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won t be reading any from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won t go out of my way to read , But if I find another book by the au [...]

I have always loved ghost stories and just happened to run across the volume while I was spending some time at the library I really enjoyed reading these new additions to the genre with Neil Gaiman and Peter Straub being the 2 authors that I was the most familiar with As with any collection of short stories, there were some that I loved and then there were some that left me saying What On the whole, though, I m glad I picked this up The stories run from The Ex , where a previous wife uses her gh [...]


Nitya Sivasubramanian

As with all anthologies, this read was hit or miss for me I grabbed it off the shelf because it s October and Neil Gaiman s name is the on the cover, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover that his was not my favorite story in the book though it s definitely in the top five The stories range from truly terrifyingly supernatural to oddly disturbing mental wanderings Perfect for a pre Halloween read while on a long road trip.


Lolkatings

Another great collection of short stories, this time based on the idea of spirits Good read.


David Scott

This is an excellent collection of well written stories The most atmospheric one was The Lagerst tte by Laird Barron, and the rest of them were quite interesting and sometimes mysterious, with an exceptionally postmodern one called The Score by Alaya Dawn Johnson.


Wendy Mills

Some of these tales were as sad as they were haunting.


Megan

While I found the stories in this book to be well written, I did not find it to be true ghosts stories, I was disappointed After I read a couple from the front of the book, I browsed through the rest and it was OK not a normal things that go bump in the night kind of book I expected haunted houses and real literary ghosts, Maybe my interpretation of the book is off.


Leena

I honestly couldn t finish this Some of the stories were interesting and held my attention But most of the ones I read were plain and boring I felt like I was reading a report made by a machine Others might like this but I just couldn t bring myself to get through this.


Martha

I liked this collection I was expected of the stories to be creepy, but only two of them creeped me out Another two were just kind of gross, but overall, the collection was fully of good ghost stories.


Louise Marley

Excellent collection of literary short stories Nothing better than a good, well written ghost story to send you off to sweet dreams at night.


Katie

Great short story collection from some heavyweights in the horror fantasy sci fi fields


Kim Switzer

Such a wide range of ghost stories Creepy, strange, visceral the whole spectrum Definitely worth a read.


Jane Russo

I was disappointed in the book I believe it is totally mis titled These are not ghost stories.


An Redman

2.5 at best.Enjoyed the first four stories then it went downhill fast The TOC is ineffective a different staggering of stories might of made them palatable Was a slog to finish it.


Taneel Moore

It isn t your typical scary stories A couple of them were pretty good but for the most part, not a book I could get into.


KanmanirUK

I liked the way t has been narrated
