Recommended for: People who like ghost stories

This is a very enjoyable collection of ghost and weird stories that span several genres, everything from paranormal/science fiction to historical mystery. The highlights for me were "The Wall" by Rhys Bowen and "Ten Thousand Cold Nights," by James Lincoln Warren. The latter is a Japanese themed ghost story that, while not a historical mystery per se, incorporates a good deal of Japanese history.

"The Gorilla Murders," by O'Neil De Noux, also deserves honorable mention--a historical mystery set in New Orleans. It pays homage to Edgar Allan Poe's "Murders in the Rue Morgue."
