It's tough to come up with a unique and creepy ghost story. This collection has quite a few to its credit. And like any anthology, a few clinkers. Overall still enjoyable, though.
My favorites: "Bottom of the Hour" - Giunta, "Song of the Shark God" -

Lotsa subplots twine together with a central riddle to bind them all.
In the dark.
A fun read with a cast of familiars (!), and a barrelful of new ones.
A notch better than the first of the series. May give the 3rd a shot!
