Ghost Stories of an Antiquary Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Ghost Stories of an Antiquary

This slim collection of ghost stories is the fountain out of which the "modern" ghost story developed from its Victorian roots. It is the single greatest collection of ghost stories ever published and is an absolute pleasure (with shudders and chills) to read.
