Book Description

Veteran fantasy and horror author Lisa Tuttle has assembled thirteen of her imaginative inquiries into the nature of ghosts and the people they visit, covering territory from gothic romance to the just plain creepy. Incisive, sexy, and unsettling, Ghosts and Other Lovers should appeal to both fans of classic ghost stories and those seeking bold psychological fantasy.

Stories include: In Jealousy; Mr Elphonstone's Hands; From Another Country; The Walled Garden; Lucy Maria; The Extra Hour; Where the Stones Grow; White Lady's Grave; Soul song; Food Man; Manskin, Womanskin; Turning Thirty; Haunts.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very nice collection 11 April 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the kind of short story collection where you want to dash on to the next story immediately because the last one was so good - and at the same time you want to stop and savour what you've last read, and make the whole experience last. The stories are disturbing without being gruesome, sad, charming and irresistible as a box of very good chocolates, when you've lost the guide which tells you what flavour you can expect - sometimes sweet, sometimes with a sharp bite of alcohol, often surprising. I won't do any spoilers but I particularly recommend "White Lady's Grave" - I thought I knew what was going to happen in the end, but I didn't, and neither, alas, did the heroine, "The Walled Garden", "Lucy Maria" - and - especially for writers - especially for women writers - "The Extra Hour". Who wouldn't want a study where time stands still? But, oh...the guilt...
Thoroughly recommended.
