Found this in hubby's truck after returning from vacation with hagathorn.
Not sure if this was meant to be released in the truck or if it is an escapee from her stash of books she brought along to release.

Sending off on a journey in "The Otherworldly" bookbox.

I'm claiming this from the Otherworldly bookbox. I love ghost stories, and this collection includes some classics as well as some that are new to me. There are urban legends and folk tales, classics like Stevenson's "The Body Snatcher", and even some whimsical stories such as Stephen Leacock's “Q. A Psychic Pstory of the Psupernatural".

Among my favorites: Calvino's "The Devil's Breeches," a modern take on a deal-with-the-devil with an ending that seems upbeat and yet suggests darkness to come; Thomas Hardy's poem on the transitory nature of life, "Ah, Are You Digging On My Grave?"; the horrifying-revenge story "The Cedar Closet" by Lafcadio Hearn; Nathaniel Hawthorne's retelling of the Perseus myth, "The Gorgon's Head"; the tragic "An Unposted Letter" by Newton MacTavish; and "The Woodcutter's Wife" by Priscilla Galloway, a look at "Hansel and Gretel" from the viewpoint of the wicked stepmother - and with a nicely chilling conclusion.

There are color and black-and-white illustrations throughout, some quite creepy and others a bit juvenile, but overall it's a nice collection.

I left this book, bagged against the elements, in Greenwood Park while geocaching in the area; hope the finder enjoys the book!
