    I will read more in this series. Van Vogt is a good story. These hunters search not for animals, but for the touch, taste, and empowerment of human flesh. I suppose any enjoyment of the stories comes from the same type of morbid fascination that makes some people like true-crime - it certainly worked for me.

    I think the editor did an overall good job picking the stories; he did make me discover a lot of authors that I had never heard of and a lot I did know and I think discovering new authors is one of the main purpose of a short story anthology with entertaining The Party by William F. Christmas Honeymoon by Howard Spring was fantastic! January 1, Whitney I thought this anthology was uneven at best. Van Vogt is a good story. This is consistent with other, more modern ghost stories that I've read, where Catholics are lumped into the same category.

    I had expected so much more of this collection and I was badly disappointed unfortunately That is, we are doing the same thing as Google, only within the framework of one subject. That said, the overall quality of the selections is consistently high. Only in one or two does this also include badly researched garbage, so not bad. I'm finished.

January 1, Jessica This book was boring.

The Mammoth Book of the World's Best Crime Stories (2009, Paperback)

Christmas Honeymoon by Howard Spring was fantastic! January 1, Amber I brought this book to read while camping this summer. Each month we recycle over 2.

I wanted a more fairy-tale ending, with good and bad punished appropriately. I suppose any enjoyment of the stories comes from the same type of morbid fascination that makes some people like true-crime - it certainly worked for me.

If you have any issues or concerns please contact our customer service team and they will be more than happy to help. Some parts seem crazy but amazing and others seem just straight up boring.

A Spot of Gothic by Jane Gardam was good. The conclusion of the story was lacklustre and uninspired, but I am glad I am finally finished reading this story, because it was very dull to read! It doesn't feel very scary at all, but it's a good story.

The Mammoth Book of Ghost Stories by Women

I think this is why I enjoyed it so much, as I prefer to read tales that force us to look at the world or ourselves differently, instead of a book of cheap tricks and tales which is what some of the other readers apparently expected The book stories are divided in section.

Mammoth indeed. We know the excitement of a new page turner, or the familiar joy of an old favourite. January 1, Mark It was rather hard work to finish this book - some of the stories are really not very good - but I'm glad I did.

A clear, useful guide through the current chaotic political landscape. All of our books are checked for quality before they go on sale and we like to think that our prices mean that no book is beyond your budget. America is the sole system with only two parties, both of which are convinced that the other is not only incompetent a traditional accusationbut a danger to the nation.

Looking back, the book as made me discover some new others notably a new favourite, MR James. All was not lost however. I just really didn't like this book. All of our paper waste is recycled and turned into corrugated cardboard.

Hopefully the other stories will be interesting and unique, I love Oh whistle, and I'll come to you my lad- M. So, if you happen to pick up this book, the stories I recommend reading are: A. Wells is still a lot of fun, but I have to admit, I skip to the ending now.

Now I've finished reading one short story from it called "The Willows", and it wasn't very good. We offer great value books on a wide range of subjects and we have grown steadily to become one of the UK's leading retailers of second-hand books.Sep 05,  · The Mammoth Book of True War Stories: A New Selection of 60 Unforgettable Accounts of the Horror and Heroism of War Across the Ages [Jon E.
