From the foggy streets of Victorian London to the eerie perfection of 1950s suburbia, the everyday is invaded by the evil otherworldly in this unforgettable collection of new ghost stories from the author of The Woman in Black.In the title story, on a murky evening in a warmly lit club off St James, a bishop listens closely as a paranormal detective recounts his most memorable case, one whose horrifying denouement took place in that very building.In 'The Front Room', a devoutly Christian mother tries to protect her children from the evil influence of their grandmother, both when she is alive and when she is dead.A lonely boy finds a friend in 'Boy Number 21', but years later he is forced to question the nature of that friendship and to ask whether ghosts can perish in fires.This is Susan Hill at her best, telling characteristically flesh-creeping and startling tales of thwarted ambition, terrifying revenge and supernatural stirrings that will leave readers wide awake long into the night.… (més)

A trilogy of ghost stories that was entertaining at least.

None of these are links and there are no recurring characters.

They vary in terms of timing through from what although not specified is probably the 1920s or certainly prewar, to the modern day.

All of which use a ghost and spiritual aspect as their main protagonists. This leads to some unpleasant shocks.

This is a very good compilation, a pity it could not be drawn out a bit longer, and in addition the characters drawn a bit deeper.

first story in particular, will stick in my mind. Recommended for what it is. ( )

This book is actually a collection of 4 short stories:A Travelling Bag,Boy Twenty-one, Ann  Baker and The Front Room. And although they do not occur in a 19th century setting they do have a very Victorian atmosphere. They are absolutely delightful (if one can speak of a delightful ghost story?)If you like your ghost stories bloody, gory and very frightful, then this is definitely not for you. But if you like a ghostly (and mysterious)twist at the end of a good and captivating story,then this is a perfect read!

A set of four interesting ghostly tales. They have the feel of classic stories, and yet they are, for the most part, set in contemporary times (or close to it). They are also hauntings that have a degree of subtlety to them, a touch that makes them feel that bit more real, plausible. Normal people experiencing abnormal things that simply... are. ( )

I normally do not read short stories, because I prefer novels. But this collection of ghost stories caught my eyes and definitely did not disappoint me.

Five gripping stories, written in the best tradition of the well-known Gothic stories and novels of the 18th and 19th century, kept me reading, wondering and sharing the thrills with the protagonists. Susan Hill knows perfectly how to develop stories with hints to supernatural and ghostly events, offering almost logical explanations to the reader, but each story finishing with new twists, facts, that are no longer explainable.

For readers that enjoy a really good ghost story, safely nestled up in a wing chair on a dark November evening.

I've read two other books by Susan Hill. I found The Woman in Black satisfyingly spooky, but The Small Hand left me wanting, as did this collection of stories. There just wasn't anything to hook me in any of these tales.

"Alice Baker" was my favorite of this bunch, but overall, there was too much of the glowing phantasm and the ready explanation of events for me. I like a little chill from my scary stories, a little something to make my scalp tingle and make me walk a little faster down the dark hallway to my bedroom after I've been reading after dinner, but these stories didn't have that effect on me.
