      "The cover of this little book looks to be woven of mists and moonbeams, as mystical and as exquisite as the tales themselves. Exquisite may seem a singular term to apply to a volume of ghost lore, but no other word could so well convey an idea of the first impression of the work. Sweetness, beauty and grace are its earliest effects, and these are not the usual characteristics of the shapes of fear assumed to revisit the glimpses of the moon. . . . such slender, shadowy delicate little studies of the unknown that the effect which they produce appears at first out of proportion to the size of the work. . . . The stories are works of art; the spirit of the work is of the noblest; the style is of the best and the simplest, so simple that only the very greatest is more simple." -- The Bookman, Jan. 1899
