These are not all blood and gore--thanks goodness. They are stories meant to haunt you, not to make you sick to your stomach. Thank you for this collection. The genre deserves to be preserved and it is being hashed-up with slashers and evil doers. Horror is as much an internally generated experiences as it is fear of others. This is a nice collection.
Excellent introduction to the literary ghost story genre

More people should know about literary ghost stories, which I like to describe as "wonder tales from the shadow side." They tend not to be tales of graphic horror. True, if the term "gothic" suggests terror and violence to the reader, that reader might be disappointed. But stories like the ones in GOTHIC GHOSTS take the reader away, and have enduring power.
