2.0 out of 5 stars New ghost stories(the fiction desk) 23 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An interesting read and some odd stories, but none of these were particularly true ghost stories. I think a good read of Edgar Allen, M R James or even Susan Hill would do you good!!!

As all anthologies, a mixed bunch. Some are stunning, some are quite good. None are duds. Personal favourites: the first one in the collection (that old hospital gave me a chill on a sunny afternoon) and the one about the old lady on the bus (loved the ending).

Something of a curate's egg this one. Any anthology runs that risk. I enjoyed 'In the walls' and 'Old Ghosts' but the rest were for me rather obvious.

4.0 out of 5 stars Has some strong, fresh winners 3 Feb. 2014
By Star Girl - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
New Ghost Stories, published by The Fiction Desk, features some strong, fresh stories that make this collection worth picking up. Julia Patt’s “At Glenn Dale”--based on a real location--preys on urban explorer fantasies and ratchets the tension beautifully, while Eloise Shepherd’s “Journeyman” has the rare distinction of something I’ve honestly never seen done: the ghost’s appearance is so seamlessly integrated, sharp, short and shocking it’s almost as though it’s a film image; it’s a jump-inducing moment that made me question whether or not I had really seen it. Matthew Licht’s “Washout” uses the sense of smell to flesh out its setting and help the reader relate to the circumstances of its sorry characters, and the entrance of the supernatural is so completely unexpected it would’ve made a surprising addition to a non-genre-specific collection. My personal favorite, though, is Jason Atkinson’s “Half Mom,” a palpable examination of loss and regret with a bit of black comedy. All in all, those four make New Ghost Stories a general recommend for ghost story junkies who are tired of the same old stuff.
