4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 26 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Book of Horrors (Kindle Edition)
Very enjoyable collection of stories, I love horror/ghost anthologies and this fitted the bill perfectly. It was also cheap as a kindle download- always a good selling point to a tightwad like me.

I enjoyed "Getting it Wrong" and "The Little Green God....", both good stories.

My favourites were "a Child's Problem", based on a rather strange picture by the artist Richard Dadd. It had tones of M.R James in there, and the child at the centre of the tale was a singularly horrible little brat: a great tale.

I enjoyed "Near Zennor", quite a long and haunting story. It had an eerie and quite melancholic feel to it.

"The Man in The Ditch", by Lisa Tuttle was a great tale, though I found the dialogue a bit stilted in places. The central character was being haunted, after a fashion, by the ghost of an iron age human sacrifice- a "bog man". Tuttle was inspired to write this after seeing the cover of the book by P V Glob "The Bog People".
I remember my uncle having the book by Glob when I was a child, and it's made me want to buy it now.

I would say this is one of the better collections of horror stories I have read recently.
