Review:

“[A] handsome collection to leave us deliciously chilled. . . . [Niffenegger’s] illustrations are sympathetic, skilful, and in places decidedly unsettling.” —Sarah Perry, The Guardian 

“[C]risp. . . . [T]he best [stories] . . . do an excellent job of evoking that crucial frisson of dread.” —Publishers Weekly

“Niffenegger is a master of the supernatural . . . she knows a good horror story when she sees one.” —Bustle 

“From a contemporary master of spooky stories comes an anthology of the best ghost stories.” —The Millions

“[A]n eclectic collection of literary ghost stories, adorned with [Niffenegger’s] graceful black and white drawings. . . . This spooky stocking-filler would be a good bet if you’re not sure what the bookworm in the family has read.” —The Sydney Morning Herald

“Each tale is so succinctly spun, so carefully rendered, that you’ll likely groan when putting the book down to answer the knock of trick-or-treaters. My suggestion: Leave the candy on the porch for grabbing, make a nice hot cup of tea and let the words do the haunting.” —April Robertson, Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette

“[Ghostly is a] luscious collection. . . . Niffenegger has a lovely tone and the introductions really enable you to pick a story to suit a mood. . . . [T]he sort of thing you will keep for years. Lucky really, as you’ll probably only be able to manage a couple of stories per year.” —The Debrief

“Spiky social satire gives these chilling tales more bite. A wonderfully creepy collection. . . . Niffenegger’s ‘Secret Life with Cats’ . . . left me reeling.” —Liz Hoggard, The Independent (4 stars)

“Selections tend to veer towards the quirky rather than the terrifying and I loved Niffenegger’s . . . Secret Life, With Cats, even though I’m Team Dog.” —Sarra Manning, Red

“Niffenegger’s illustrations are beautiful and haunting as ever, her brief introductions are insightful, and some of the stories are particularly memorable. . . . [F]or a collection of traditional Gothic-style ghost stories spanning the past two centuries, Ghostly is about the best you could ever ask for.” —Gapers Block
