The last 2-3 ghost stories I have read were abysmal, I really enjoy remembering the good ones I have read over the years. Each and every one of these stories is excellent, but the one with the most chilling ending has to be Bernard Taylors "Sweetheart, Sweetheart". I couldn´t fall asleep after reading this book.


I just realized that the majority of these books fall into the "haunted house" categorie as well. The only exception is Michelle Pavers "Thin Air", which is set on Kanchenjunga in the Himalayas (a setting I prefer over Pavers other ghost story "Dark Matter", which is set in the Arctic) and "Der Schimmelreiter" (The Dykemaster), in which a ghost is haunting a dyke in Northern Frisia.


I hope that I can fit in another ghostly tale in my Halloween Bingo this year.
