    This book is the same book as Dumas' One Thousand and One Ghosts -- so I actually read two books at once. And it's really, really good in case you're wondering. Back soon.

    A fairly standard and lightweight collection of horror stories - talking decapitated heads, vampires and the like - but fairly enjoyable. I've read it a couple of times before but I don't think my copy will endure another read through. I found it years ago for 50p in the sadly missed Hooked On Books second hand bookshop in Dover and it is now mostly loose pages.

    Also known as ‘The One Thousand and One Ghosts’, this story by Dumas was a real true joy to read. Having read a lot of Dumas over the years, he predominately focuses on the (French) Royal Family. You get ‘none Royal Works’ such as The Fencing Master, The Borgias and, his Celebrated Crimes Series. Many of which can be quite a struggle to get through, purely focusing on historical fact information rather than much of a story. Here on the other hand I feel we have a success for ‘None Royal Works’. T Also known as ‘The One Thousand and One Ghosts’, this story by Dumas was a real true joy to read.

Here on the other hand I feel we have a success for ‘None Royal Works’. The story focuses on the mental anguish and torture of the main character who believes he is going mad with visions. Various ghostly stories ensure. Some of this book is worth of Poe and reminiscent of ‘the murders of the rue morgue’. Perhaps being rather nit picky, I docked a star for this book because, Dumas, albeit briefly did have to bring in the Royal Family/ Marie Antoinette.

    Not really a novel, more a set of stories linked through a plot device. Of the four, one of the selections seems reminiscent of a Hawthorne piece, two are more or less forgettable, and the last is a pretty standard gothic vampire tale. It feels really underdeveloped for Dumas.
