This was one of the two or three books that had the biggest impact on me as a kid; I read it many times, and probably can't be objective about it.

Interestingly enough, it was also the first book I reviewed on Amazon. Here's that review, which I posted on July 15, 1998:

Great book of spooky tales for children

I discovered this book when I was the perfect age for it, and I still enjoy it today. It's a collection of ten stories about ghosts and the supernatural with a little fantasy and science ficti
I remember reading this book over and over as a kid. Imagine my delight when I was cleaning out a box of random 'crap' my mom had put away when I moved out (sorry, mom, for how long you've been my free storage solution...) and pulled it out again. I'd completely forgotten every story except for vague memories of "Do You Believe In Ghosts?"

Ghosts & More Ghosts is a collection of (from an adult point of view) somewhat tame ghost stories. But while tame, they are also unique enough to make them
“It was a weird sort of sound he heard, a shuffle-shuffle then a click…” One of a collection of short story’s found in the book Ghosts and more Ghosts by Robert Arthur Jr. Footsteps Invisible narrates the tale of a blind newspaper salesman Jorman who has the uncanny ability of telling his customers by their footsteps and the story of Sir Andrew who is being chased around the world by something that always tracks him down.
This story holds so much of what scares me in a good horror story. The uns
As a somewhat precocious kid who liked to creep herself out, I really took to these stories. Especially "The Rose Crystal Bell." and "Footsteps Invisible," the latter of which would make an excellent radio drama, if there was still such a thing.
One of my favorite books growing up. I would read it every October and often inbetween. I finally found a new copy since my original was so worn out. It is still as good today as when I first read it.
There are two stories that I remember from this book, and still give me the shivers to this day: "Footsteps Invisible" and "Do You Believe". The others stories are just okay.
Probably the first ghosty collection I ever read. It belonged to my Uncle. This is still one of my very favorites, though it looks to be hard to find now.
An enjoyable collection of classic-style ghost stories intended for precocious kids who like to creep themselves out. This was one of my cherished books when I was young, and I still enjoy going back to it now and then.

I agree 100% with IziEzi that "Footsteps Invisible" and "Do You Believe in Ghosts?" are the stand-outs.

Some of the stories feel a little dated, having been written in the early 1940s (so they already felt that way back when I read them). But I suspect even a post-Gen X kid will s
