Book Review Blurb: Echoes: The Saga Anthology of Ghost Stories by Ellen Datlow (Ed.)

This was a very strong collection, ranging from campfire ghost stories to more traditional horror with a ghostly theme. Most of the stories held my attention and interest – which is something that doesn’t often happen with anthologies. I’m not a short-story person generally, but I went in knowing a number of the authors represented and was cautiously optimistic based on that, but interestingly I found that several of the previously-unknown-to-me writers produced the stories I enjoyed the most – most notably Paul Tremblay’s opener, Vincent J. Masterson’s “Linger Longer”, Gemma Files’ “The Puppet Motel, and especially A.C. Wise’s “The Ghost Sequences”. Richard Kadrey and Seanan McGuire delivered the type of solid story I expect from them, and I also enjoyed the Garth Nix (which was darker than I expected). All in all it was a creepy and engaging set of tales – not to be read at night before bed, which is when I usually read my review books!

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my review copy.
