    One thought on “Familiar Spirits

    1. This collection was funded through Kickstarter, and I supported it I chose both the electronic and a signed print version as my rewards I think I got my money s worth.I ve always liked ghost stories, although they used to scare me to death when I was a kid I ll admit when I pledged this particular project that I was expecting a slightly longer book I guess I ve gotten spoiled by the Ragnarok Publications doorstoppers.But like I said, I think I got my money s worth With the exception of Jean Rabe [...]


    2. First let me state that I was a Kickstarter backer for this anthology I came across the project by accident in a search for horror projects I had never heard of any of the author s before Typically I find that anthologies are filled with some great stories and some weak stories, but not here Every story was attention grabbing and delightfully haunting Green Lady was a delight in it s unfolding, and The New Girl was delicious in it s ending Statuary by T.S Rhodes was my favorite in the whole book [...]


    3. Enjoyable ghost stories, some of them from local authors Strong writing from Bill Pack, TS Rhodes, and Dorey Becker I particularly liked the historic flavor of Lynne Handy s The Green Lady Also bringing out local color of the South was my Cold Nosed favorite by Jean Rabe Some creepy stuff and a few surprises throughout this anthology.



    4. I saw William Pack at my local library last year He was AWESOME He was selling books, so I bought it This book is a collection of ghost stories, but some of them center around other spooky tales Many of the short stories are well written and really entertaining That being said, some of them are just meh It s a short read, so I like to pick it up and skim through my favorite stories and read them around this time of year Spooky

    6. I m not a fan of short stories or the horror genre, but must give spectral love to these ghost stories, especially The New Girl by my sister, Kate Johnson.
