A horrifying 1908 collection of eighteen true ghost stories written by acclaimed author, Elliott O'Donnell.
O'Donnell was an Irish author known primarily for his books about ghosts. He claimed to have seen a ghost, described as an elemental figured covered with spots, when he was five years old. He also claimed to have been strangled by a mysterious phantom in Dublin.
In later life he became a ghost hunter, but first he traveled in America, working on a range in Oregon and becoming a policeman during the Chicago Railway Strike of 1894. Returning to England, he worked as a schoolmaster and trained for the theater. He served in the British army in World War I, and later acted on stage and in movies.
Obviously, an anthology of this nature will not please everybody perfectly because there is a wide variety of themes and stylistic approaches represented in this book. Nevertheless, this is an excellent collection of stories from a wide variety of different themes, subjects and tones.
