Ghost Stories

One thing that amazes me is the few reviews we've had for Gunslingers & Ghost Stories always seem to start out with "I don't really like ghost stories."  Then they go on to say if you have to read ghost stores, this isn't a bad collection.  This seems to be particularly true in the USA.  Hardly anyone has reviewed it even though a record number of review copies went out.  "Ghost stories, I'm not reading that. Yuk." It kind of reminds me of the kid who won't eat his spinach. 

Ghost stories are good for you.  People should have to read ghost stories. Americans all want vampires and werewolves. They make you read A Christmas Carol in school, or watch the play. Then that's it. No more ghosts for you. Yet, at the same time, there are at least a half dozen paranormal shows on TV about ghost hunting. Go figure.
