Read in July, 2009

I recently read a magazine article about excellent ghost stories and James' 'The Haunted Dolls House' was mentioned. That is what prompted me to buy this collection. A lot of the language is somewhat old as James died in 1936. However the story telling is largely brilliant.

Whilst I enjoyed the Dolls House tale my favourite was '13' which is a real scary tale, just the sort to read around a camp fire in the fading light, perhaps on halloween.

The Mezzotint is also a remarkably good ghostly tale

If you haven't read any of these and you like ghost and horror stories give this collection a try.............. or I'll come to your house draped in a white sheet and shout ........BOO!
