This is probably the best book of ghost stories that could written by someone who has a love for the form a serviceable style and no spark of genius whatsoever If this sounds harsh I don't mean it to be; as a matter of fact it gives me hope that one day I too can write a good ghost story For every story in this book although none of them has the least touch of greatness is worth at least one reading The English countryside brings out the best in Northcote and most of the best of his stories use it to advantage Brickett Bottom The Downs The Last Mrs Fowkes and my favorite In the Woods
