• Ackroyd's book has its fair share of terrified hauntees and, unless you're a sceptic, there are plenty of scenes that will make the hairs on the back of your neck bristle

    Simon Griffith, Mail on Sunday
  • A rich and compelling assembly of stories for winter nights

    New Statesman
  • This is a wonderful little book. It's properly old-fashioned and unorthodox, a scrapbook of clues, tittle-tattle, hints and mortal byways

    Roger Clarke, Independent
  • Ackroyd's collection glides seamlessly from terror to humour to downright peculiarity: it is the ideal read as the nights darken and Halloween approaches

    Tina Jackson, Metro
  • A fascinating anthology of sightings of ghosts in England over the centuries

    Andrew Lycett, Literary Review
