I first read this book back in '70s, when I was about 10, probably not appropriate reading but I used to sneak it off the bookshelf at my gran's.
This was a real blast from the past, they are not the greatest horror tales in the world and seem to rely heavily on the gore factor. The exception to this was "Mrs Anstey's Scarecrow" and "The Whispering Horror" which are genuinely good, suspenseful stories.
However, I enjoyed re-reading the book. It is a bit dated but good fun all the same.
