Jerome K Jerome is one of the funniest authors I have ever read. This collection of ghost stories was first published in 1891, and concerns a group of friends who are sitting around telling each other ghost stories on Christmas Eve. The introduction alone is worth the price of this book, as Jerome proceeds to poke fun at ghosts themselves and at ghost stories. I promise you will laugh out loud reading this book. To read Jerome K Jerome is like watching good stand up comedy. If you have never read him before I would also recommend "Three Men in a Boat", and "Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow". "I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours." Jerome K Jerome
