"Here lies the magic of the genre; it allows you to dip your toe into an adrenaline-pumping world, while in the safety of your own armchair... It's Niffenegger's eclectic edit of stories from the past 200 years that really left us reeling" Stylist "There are shivers aplenty in this collection of ghostly tales by a variety of authors, chosen by Niffenegger, from the eerie and uncanny to the delightfully odd. Each story, creepy as it is, has a sense of loss and curtailment at its heart" Psychologies "The action takes place in a classic creepy house - a motif that also appears in Audrey Niffenegger's short story "Secret Life With Cats", a standout in Ghostly, an anthology of tales intended to cause shudders" Vogue "Niffenegger is a prolific graphic novelist and her monochrome illustrations... really bring the stories to life" -- Jessica Whiteley, four stars Stylist "All the classics in one place" -- Chloe Gipson Marie Claire
