This isn't horror in the vein of Hollywood - It's horror on the order of The Twilight Zone or tales told around a campfire when you're young.

All of the stories are ghost stories of one sort or another, and there's a great creepiness to them. However, if you're looking for blood, gore or outright terror, you'll probably want to find a different book.

My favorite was Haunted which turns the haunting around. My other favorites were the twin stories of the civil war soldiers, and the nod to Edgar Allen Poe.

I'm not sure why I picked up and read this Kindle freebie before I read Nicholson's Drummer Boy which I bought a month or so ago, but I am definitely going to try to get that book read sooner now since I've enjoyed this collection.
