This was a pretty fabulous and comprehensive anthology. There was enough in this volume to keep me busy during my October horrorfest. Most of the great writers of the genre have been included. I enjoyed it thoroughly. ( )

The Big Book of Ghost Stories- Otto Penzler – Editor-is a 2012 Vintage Crime/ Black Lizard publication.

If you love Pure ghost stories, this book is one you do not want to miss. Every fall, like many other people, I find myself in the mood for a good old-fashioned ghost story. However, in my search for a pure ghost story, I am often disappointed. Not this time, though!!

The book is broken into sections- such as-

“I’m not dead Yet, I’ll Love you- Forever ( Or Maybe), This Old House, Kid will be Kids, Stop- You’re scaring Me, A Séance, you say? Classics, and much more!

Most of these stories are short- some are a bit longer than others, and several are just a few pages in length. Ghost stories are not just for Halloween, of course. For me, any dark, cold winter night is the perfect setting for a nice ghostly tale. But many of these stories are also suitable for a good campfire Spine-Tingler, too.

In other words, this is a compilation one should not feel obligated to read from front to back- all at one time. I got my Halloween ghost story fix this year, by skipping around between sections, and by choosing to read stories by some authors I did not know much about. However, there are many recognizable names in this collection- some of which, I was surprised to learn, had ever written a ghost story.

Each story begins with a brief note about the author, which is also a nice touch and gave me some reference points so that I could check out more of their work.

Of this massive collection, there were only a handful of stories I recognized, so overall, these are all new to me. Of the stories I have read so far, only one of them did not fit my criteria for a ghost story. It was a good story but was more fitting for an episode of The Twilight Zone, or something. A few of the stories are a little flimsy, but overall, this has proved to be splendid, very comprehensive, and goose pimply collection of ghost stories and hauntings!! ( )

dead, and dumb as hell. ( )

"Mr. Arcularis," by Conrad Aiken (1931): 7
- so the problem with thematic genre anthologies is clear: you know the turn, largely, or at least in its main thrust. And this seems especially problematic with ghost stories, so that "success" becomes how well did you pull off the inevitable or how well did you tweak the formula? Not the best way to read a short story, but pleasurable in its own way. And this was basically at work in this story, a tidy-enough version of the 'didn't know he's dead' genre, although this was basically the gist of the twist altogether, which meant that there weren't really any other nuggets or games along the way.

"August Heat," by William Fryer Harvey (1910): 8.25
- straightforward story, straightforwardly told -- of a man prefiguring not only his own death, but also the trial and conviction of his own murderer, and who, on account of this premonition, actually brings it about. It's in and it's out. Yet, what pushed it ahead of some other works is the actual menace at the end of story, as we realize--through seemingly benign references to the mason sharpening his tools and staring a bit absently at the completely unwitting artist.

"The Shadowy Third," by Ellen Glasgow (1916): 8.25
- The story is what it is: a ghost story. And in classic fin-de-siecle ghost story fashion, all is telegraphed early and the tension comes in the psychological denouement and skill at which all of this is doled out through the prose and narrativization. This does those things moderately skillfully, albeit with the pacing canyons common to the genre and period. More interesting, from an historical curio pov, is the nicely ‘modern’, ie unsentimental look at nursing as a profession, and especially women’s place within it.

Nice collection though very long, too long to finish from the library. I will be buying this one sure enough ( )
