A classic collection from 1955, this is very much about comfortable, middle class ghosts. The writers reek of middle-classness, their prose overdone and their imagination limited. Lady Cynthia herself is by far the worst. There are, however, some gems amid the dross - a story by Robert Aickman I hadn't come across before ("Ringing the Changes"), Marghanita Laski's solitary classic ("The Tower"), and one by a writer unknown to me ("The House in the Glen" by John Connell). Otherwise, I'm afraid to say, not worth the bother.
