Haunted and humorous-an irresistible anthology of spooky fiction
Almost everybody loves a good ghost story. Masters (and especially mistresses) of the art of the short story have left us many finely crafted examples to enjoy around a warm, open fire as the dark and cold press in but remain excluded behind thick curtains. There is a certain pleasing thrill-a titillation of enjoyment-in the most unadulterated frightening tales. This book takes a different tack. Not content to give the reader a shudder of fear, the editor has sought out some of the finest exponents of the genre, and chosen stories that seek to bring a smile-and perhaps a chuckle-to the faces of enthusiasts of haunted tales. 'Funny Bones' contains 19 stories of the supernatural to amuse and frighten-often at the same time. Great fun!
