Haunts Reliquaries Of The Dead

Haunts Reliquaries Of The Dead by Stephen Jones

About The Book:
A bone-chilling collection of tales packed with horrific ghosts, malevolent spirits and the poor living souls they haunt. Everyone loves a good scare. From stories around the campfire to reading Goosebumps under the covers, every kid discovers the thrill of spooky ghosts and wicked ghouls. But Haunted is no collection of kiddie tales - it’s an absolutely terrifying anthology of creepy classics. Haunted ushers in a new era of bone-chilling and shocking ghost fiction. It showcases a wide gamut of works, including ancient spirits roaming antebellum mansions, lost children tormenting depraved killers, and decapitated soldiers seeking final revenge. It even features the occasional uplifting account of supernatural encounters with the other side.

My Thoughts:
I love a good ghost story, and this book does not disappoint! Spooky and exciting, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's got some new ghost stories in it, ready for the telling around the camp fire this summer! I can't wait! But, this is definitely not a book for the kiddos!

About The Author:
Stephen Jones lives in London, England. He is the winner of three World Fantasy Awards, four Horror Writers Association Bram Stoker Awards and three International Horror Guild Awards, as well as being a twenty-times recipient of the British Fantasy Award and a Hugo Award nominee.

I received a complimentary review copy of this book from Ulysses Press. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
