    "I really enjoyed the atmospheric and claustrophobic setting. The tale is chilling and extraordinarily well written, I think Susan Hill's book is an excellent example of a dwindling genre fo traditional ghost story without being a horror story. A gothic novel written in the 1980's. Enjoy. "

    Quiet Houses

    This book collects seven different stories about the investigations carried out by Richard Nakata, a ghost hunter whose investigations will become clearer as we keep reading each story. Even though they can be read as standalone tales, reading the whole stories in order will help you build a bigger and clearer picture about what's going on in those houses.

    "I have always been into reading short stories, but never horror shorts. Great Tales of Terror and the Supernatural was a great introduction into short stories for me. Honestly, all other short stories seem like a long lost past now. The proof is on the pages and many of the stories left me in wonder and amazement. This is a solid set of horror stories and I highly recommend it to my horror loving friends!"

    "This is a really straight forward story of action and mystery, set against a paranormal western backdrop. The setting, the magic and strange world, is the only real card this author had to play, because everything else is by the numbers and right out of the standard rulebook. But the characters help tip it over into a decent read, as we follow along with a US Marshal on the trail of pure evil. And not just an evil guy who kills, but something truly out of this world that only the brave Marshal can stop in time to save it."

    "The paranormal aspect of this had me on the edge of my seat at times and the romance was unique (I especially liked Sam). I think I wanted the romance more fleshed out ... maybe it should have been a little longer?"
