Two more short stories of the paranormal are included in this work. I was highly entertained and enjoyed them. They appeared to be tales of the unexplained that he had been told and hence he wrote them in his own words. Of course it could be just his own imagination, either way I would recommend anyone interested in this genre not to miss out on his tales.
