This collection of sixteen stories contains a mixture of stories about ghosts and contacts from spirits, some by celebrated authors, together with essays on psychical research.

As Joseph French notes in the preface, even for the skeptic, tales of ghostly activity retain a distinct fascination. The widespread interest in psychic phenomena in the early twentieth century proved to be a significant stimulus to literary production.

Burlinson is decent. Gooding annoying. Soakes bland. Only several of the stories were interesting London, Blackwood, Bierce. The Sin-Eaters appears to be missing
