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 *
