Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Serving up chills and thrills, this collection of haunting tales offers the intelligence and emotional resonance that only comes from great writing. Whether it's John Updike writing about a shadowy Indian in a coastal New England town or T. Coraghessan Boyle's tale of a vengeful statue of the Virgin Mary, these stories show how delicious it can be to curl up with master storytellers and the things that go bump in the night.

Review:

"An excellent collection of frightful fiction!" Rocky Mountain News

Review:

"Classic around-the-campfire stories that shock and grab but still leave enough flickering darkness around the edges to make them stay with you until well past bedtime." Chicago Tribune

Synopsis:

If you can't get enough black comedy, calendar murders, or characters more frightening than ghosts; if you are ready to be haunted by a plaster virgin, a wig, a circus giantess, and a couch; or if you just want to indulge in great writing by the likes of T. C. Boyle, John Updike, Bret Lott, Katherine Davis, and Louise Erdrich, then Ghost Writing is an anthology that is bound to delight.
