    This wasn't really that much of a horror or ghost story at least to me but it was written in the same style as many very old horrors so that it read like Stoker and Poe There was a sophisticated touch to the story that lent to its felt age The book was an interesting and very short read It starts off as a professor getting ready to go on vacation while from there by a stroke of fate or luck whichever you so may choose he finds a colleague who offers him a place to stay so he can do his seasonal studies And again by fate or luck he gets shut in a house where he is pulled into a library that holds an old journal of his host's father and the mysterious events that he faced on his own trip It was a page turner to me and kept me busy reading it for the tone was authentic I was wondering where the horror or ghost story would strike while fascinated to see how it turned out The ending of the actual ghost part was a bit of a letdown but all in all I enjoyed it For the modern horror fan or ghost story who needs to scare him this may not be the write story but for those who favor the older writings I would recommend it Received this book as part of the First Reads Giveaway at Goodreadscom for free in exchange for a review

    I received a copy of this short story in exchange for an honest reviewWhen the main character get to spend the holidays in Norfolk with a friend he couldn't have imagined the family horrors That's what you get with this short story There's a bit of mystery a chilling ghost story and to top it off the author continues in his homage to MR JamesThis short story was mysterious intelligent and wonderfully creepy It's not uite as dark as The Voivod but it doesn't lack in lustre The pacing had a smooth rhythm that had me reading much faster than the first and the ending didn't disappointSee this review and others like it wwwthereadershollowcom

    I received this book as part of a goodreads giveawayThe story has an old feeling reminded me of late Victorian The story follows a visitor to a Mediterranean island During his visit he befriends the local priest During the visit the priest becomes ill and asks that the recent discovery of coins be put back before disappearing into the nightThe book is very small but very well written
