Compiled by Bennett A. Cerf:
“Do you suffer from dinner parties that sag after the soup course? Do spells of lethargy seize you at literary salons? Are you allergic to moonlight picnics? Try introducing a couple of neatly contrived ghost stories the next time the going is slow, and watch the electrifying results! Guests perk up, goose pimples do likewise, and soon everybody is remembering a story he heard about a haunted house, an ill-mannered ghost or a thing that behaved in no fashion that was human.”
In the following blogs will appear summaries of short ghost stories.
