Book Summary

"I don't want you to begin this book under false pretenses.  This is not David Copperfield or Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm.  This is a book of ghost stories and is designed both to frighten and instruct.  You see, my aim is to teach you about ghosts and I feel you will be a very sympathetic audience.  This is not a one man show.  The gallery is featuring nine of the very best ghost writers.  Pick out a story and read it.  That will make you one-tenth of a ghost.  Then proceed with the others.  I know you will enjoy yourselves and the next time you see my friendly apparition rising from inside your television tube, I trust you will feel a new friendship toward a fellow spirit.
