Read from October 28 to 31, 2011

I read this in keeping with my Halloween tradition of reading a "spooky" classic. All of the stories in this collection, The Mantle (or Overcoat or Cloak), The Nose, Memoirs of a Madman, A May Night, and Viy (King of the Gnomes) are really entertaining. All, except The Nose--which is snarky fun--involve ghosts, demons, witches, and insanity.

Well worth the read.
