    Echoes The Saga Anthology of Ghost Stories by Ellen Datlow is a 2019 a Gallery Saga Press publication Halloween is just around the corner and of course it s this time of the year when I usually find myself in the mood for a good old fashioned ghost story Yet, a good ghost story is hard to find sometimes So, when I found this anthology in my cloud library, I checked it out on the spot I was even excited by the introduction, in which famed anthology editor, Ellen Datlow, commiserated with those of us who are often disappointed by ghost story compilations, which later turn out to be a catchall for anything that might fall into the realm of horror or the paranormal, but aren t exactly what one would call an authentic ghost story So, I eagerly dived in, only to find that once again, a fair amount of these short stories, aren t ghost stories, as I might define them However, nearly all of them are weird tales or atmospheric mind benders I am not familiar with all the participating authors, but regular readers of horror novels might be Paul Trembly gets the ball rolling, but other familiar names like Alice Hoffman and Joyce Carol Oates also contribute solid stories to this collection Must be This Tall to Ride by Seanan McGuire is one of the shortest stories included but is one of the best Something about carnivals are always spooky The July Girls felt like of a traditional ghost tale which are my favorites, if I m being honest I also enjoyed The Other Woman by Alice Hoffman As with many anthologies, especially compilations as large as this one, there are a few stories that left me scratching my head in confusion, or seemed to end too abruptly However, most are contemporary, imaginative, and several were truly eerie, providing the chills and thrills a good ghost story should If you are looking for a few supernatural flavored stories that you haven t read or heard a thousand times before, this collection of original stories is one you ll want to add to your Halloween reading list 3.5 rounded up.

    Ellen Datlow is one of the most reliable anthology editors working today with a great focus on variety and storytelling, her anthologies have something for every reader As with every collection of stories, that does mean that not every story will work for every reader, but most will find a good number to enjoy here.For me, this time, there were very few misses and a couple of big hits With the misses, there weren t any stories I d say I didn t enjoy reading but the endings let them down Almost all of my misses had a kind of a Lost arc very mysterious and intriguing beginning, decent storytelling throughout that kept me hooked, then an ending that just couldn t bring the loose ends together and so just sort ofstopped The hits though, were pretty damn great Natalya, Queen of the Hungry Dogs, by John Langan, is a very different take on a life long haunting, and a truly perfect story to close out the collection About the O Dells, by Pat Cadigan, was an unexpectedly delicious little morself of revenge, and didn t let things creep into being black and white, good and bad instead keeping everything in shades of grey and doing so masterfully And finally, The Puppet Motel by Gemma Files, had me so creeped out and on edge that I vowed for the bajillionth time to stop reading ghost stories when I can t sleep It s my first from her and definitely won t be my last if I have my way.Overall, another solid collection, and definitely one that most readers should be able to find some spooky satisfaction in.

    A solid collection of ghost stories, old and new As with all collections, some of the stories are effective and better than others, but overall the mix is decent This could serve as a good introduction to writers like Seanan McGuire, Joyce Carol Oates, Alice Hoffman, and Garth Nix for those not yet familiar with their work.

    I m not often much on horror or ghost stories, but the names in this collection of authors drew me in Each tale painted its own atmosphere and many were quite clever I appreciated this diverse anthology of stories.

  13. says:

    3.5 stars Not quite as good as I have come to expect from an anthology edited by Ellen Datlow There are some awesome stories, a few of them genuinely disturbing, but than a couple are dead boring.

  14. says:

    There are 30 stories here and I had to make some choices.Of the 13 I picked all but one were good.Ms.Datlow consistently puts together really good anthologies,they have a permanent place on my shelves.
