I downloaded my copy of this book as a free Epub from Project Gutenberg (www.gutenberg.org). This was a quick read but I really enjoyed it. Granted, I read this book while sitting in a creaking one-hundred and fifty year old farmhouse (reportedly with a couple ghosts of its own) during a raging storm. I definitely had the right atmosphere for enjoying ghost stories. None of the tales were overly terrifying or horrific; creepy is a more appropriate description.
