The cover looks different.

From the back cover:
"The irish have a long and impressive tradition of ghost storytelling reaching back to Gaelic tales of the banshees. David Marcus has gathered together a ghostly cast more inclined to twentieth century methods of haunting, from the spirit who taps out SOS signals on central-heating pipes to the woman who does her spectral knitting on the screen of an unplugged television set."

This is going to be a ray:

Some of the stories were a nice read, but most of them were just boring. At least the book was better than Great Ghost Stories

I nearly gave up after the first story for it was dull and rather silly. But after that the stories are getting better and better.

Find a more detailed review in my blog (in German only).

This book is part of my "1 year of my life = 1 country = 5 books"-Challenge (4th book for Ireland).

I picked this up (together with its "book-mate") from the Post office on Monday
It seems just like my cup of tea; some of the stories are "old friends"; I will really enjoy reading... and re-reading them!

I am currently reading it, and it has some great stories so far!
I will ask for Pinkydinky's address...

7 out of 10

As with any collection of short stories, some are good, some are not so good...
I particularly liked "Hand in Glove", by Elizabeth Bowen (I am currently looking for some more short stories by her), and "A Pair of Muddy Shoes", by Lennox Robinson.
I also liked "The Captain in the Pipes", by Joseph Hone, "The Theft", by Jennifer Johnston, "Rise up, my Love, and Come away", by Patrick Boyle, "The Birth of Laughter", byu Desmond Heger, "Rich and Strange", by Peter Somerville, and "A Private Ghost" by Joyce Cary (the mixture of children and ghosts always work, as Henry James well knew...)
I must highlight the very funny "Saint Bakeoven", by Eric Cross, and the very original "A Ghost Story", by Mary Beckett, with its use of new technologies...
It will soon be on its way to Pinkydinky. Thanks for sharing...

My favourite was definitely "Rise Up, My Love, and Come Away", by Patrick Boyle. I liked some stories better than others which is always going to be the case when reading compilations. A good read.
