Another excellent collection of short stories. Del has compiled a nice choice of stories. While "haunted" is a generic enough theme that it could apply to many stories, it fit all these stories very nicely. Ghosts and haunted houses and memories. Things that leave an impact on a person's soul and their thoughts. The two stories that really stood out to me were the ones by Little and Braunbeck. Both for different reasons but each will haunt me. Below are my favorites from the book.

"Mist on the Bayou" by Heather Graham - A ghost helps save a girl from being murdered at a haunted house.

"A Nasty Way to Go" by Ardath Mayhar - A constable investigates the sightings of a ghost.

"A Slow Haunting" by John R. Little - A viscious tale of revenge that goes on for years. It sits in my mind long after I finished the story.

"Man with a Canvas Bag" by Gary A. Braunbeck - A sad story of ghosts and remembering and missed opportunities.

"Fetch" by Chuck Palahniuk - The story of a haunted tennis ball.

"The Tub" that story will haunt me for the rest of my days...

The only reason why I decided to read this compilation of horror stories mixed with eroticism, was because of the participation of Mr. Jeff Gelb (I'm a huge fan) Many of the stories pertaining to this work are pretty bad. but the few that are good are very good. and that is why I will give a 4 star rating to this work.

Didn't realize when I bought it that it was erotica/horror. Not my usual cuppa tea - erotica's fine, and horror can be too, but I prefer not to have them mixed and to the extreme. That said, this may have been good writing for the genre, but I just didn't enjoy it! It was disturbing to me, in a bad way.
