    Although Coulombe's collection only contains sixteen stories there a few great pieces to look out for. R. S. Hawker's "The Botathen Ghost," H. B. Marryat's "The Werewolf" and Ralph Adams Cram’s “The Dead Valley” all stand out--even among the more familiar names such as Dickens, Saki, Bierce and Gogol. All pieces are fairly tame and seem to have a familiar quality, and a lot of them read almost as folk tales or straight character narratives (anecdotes). In spite of this, it’s a worthwhile antholo Although Coulombe's collection only contains sixteen stories there a few great pieces to look out for. R. S. Hawker's "The Botathen Ghost," H. B.

All pieces are fairly tame and seem to have a familiar quality, and a lot of them read almost as folk tales or straight character narratives (anecdotes). In spite of this, it’s a worthwhile anthology if you can get your hands on a copy. NB I skipped some of the well known pieces and focused on the lesser known of the stories.
