      "One of the real advantages of print on demand publishing is that it is bringing back into print some of those titles I've heard of and seen at conventions for years, but for which I'm unwilling to pay the high prices the aging books demand. This is a case in point. I've read a very few Hearn stories before, enough to be interested in finding some more, and now I have two books full of his work. . . [Some Chinese Ghosts is] a collection of ghost stories based on Chinese tales, rich in atmosphere, authentic in tone, and almost without exception very good stories. It was surprising to me that most Chinese ghosts are not villainous, but are actually the heroes who gave their lives out of duty and remain behind to remind the living of their sacrifice. If you liked Dunsany's Pegana stories, you should enjoy Fantastics as well, but almost any reader is going to enjoy Hearn's collection of Chinese ghosts."
