The Crimson Blind and Other Stories (Mystery & Supernatural) (Mystery & Supernatural) characters ï eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ow to grip the reader through the invasion of everyday life by the abnormal and dra This is a particularly strong entry in the Tales of Mystery The Supernatural series from Wordsworth Editions It contains 16 short stories and all are well written and very engaging The blurb says that Mrs H D Everett knew how to grip the reader through the invasion of everyday life by the abnormal and dramatic and this is very true The hauntings she describes feel very much as if they could actually be real and many of her characters end their tales by remarking on other mundane things as if dismissing the ghostly events they have witnessed in a commonsense manner All of this makes these stories very uietly chillingThere isn t really a single bad story in the collection and all are of a very high standard The Next Heir has a slightly Lovecraftian feel with its talk of ancient gods and disused temples The Winds of Dunowe is a sort of pulp crime story with a ghostly flavour and A Water Witch and The Pipers of Mallory are also both very memorable Many of the stories are set with the First World War as a backdrop The heroes are often soldiers who have been sent home because of their injuries and the heroines are sometimes the wives or sisters of men who are away in France There is sadly no introduction to the book to give any information about who H D Everett was or at exactly what time the stories were written and this is my only complaint I would have liked to have understood a little about the context in which the stories were written but this is a very minor issue though as the stories stand superbly on their own If you re looking for a good anthology of ghost stories to read next Halloween this is one I would definitely recommend you consider
