Reviews

Ackroyd's book has its fair share of terrified hauntees and, unless you're a sceptic, there are plenty of scenes that will make the hairs on the back of your neck bristle -- Simon Griffith * Mail on Sunday *
A rich and compelling assembly of stories for winter nights * New Statesman *
This is a wonderful little book. It's properly old-fashioned and unorthodox, a scrapbook of clues, tittle-tattle, hints and mortal byways -- Roger Clarke * Independent *
Ackroyd's collection glides seamlessly from terror to humour to downright peculiarity: it is the ideal read as the nights darken and Halloween approaches -- Tina Jackson * Metro *
A fascinating anthology of sightings of ghosts in England over the centuries -- Andrew Lycett * Literary Review *
