A rant about books, horror, and the weird. I sometimes take on my love/hate relationship with goodreads and Amazon.
Guran delivers a good batch of stories about my favorite horror trope: the ghost. Given that it is a time worn sub-genre there is a pretty good amount of transcendence here that bodes well for the modern ghost story. There isn't really a Jamesian story here so if that is what you are looking for, move on.
Often in a reprint anthology with this many stories there are a few stinkers. I usually look at the author bios for the writers I don't recognize right off the bat. There were a number here that, and I paraphrase, ran like: "...their last book was a YA paranormal novel..." This usually makes me cringe and expect the worst, but the stories here are all first rate. A lot of this is due to the editor who selected these stories.
