    Read this twice now and enjoyed it both times I think my favorites are the man who spends the night at an old hotel that does not exist and the man who has to buy the haunted house without his wife knowing as she is on the verge of a nervous breakdown The second one is called The Watchers but I forget the title of the missing hotel at the moment.

    From my understanding, Nora Lofts wasn t often a writer in the realm of the paranormal Nevertheless, Hauntings, echoes back works by such authors as Shirley Jackson and Arthur Machen It was an excellent book.

    I like some of Norah Lofts books, but this one is not so much ghost stories, but seems like a handful of odd ideas that don t have much plot or lead anywhere, so the long dead Lofts decided to lump them all into a little volume and label it supernatural Disappointing overall.

  8. says:

    Pleasantly ambiguous, understated ghost stories.

  9. says:

    12 good ghost stories.

    On the bookshelf at Powell s, the world s best book store, is a very used copy of a book by one of my favorite authors which I don t remember At 3 I have to buy it and read it immediately Ms Lofts knows how to write a pithy short story These are ghost stories or just odd moments Loved all the old houses and the ways that human beings understand their lives It goes to the beach house book shelf.
