Janet Lunn has collected some of the best Canadian ghost stories around. Some of the stories like Haunted Island, about a woman killed for her precious ring on Sable Island, are based upon familiar ghost stories that the reader might have read about in other books or seen on Creepy Canada. The author also includes obviously fictional stories like the entertaining science fiction thriller The Haunting of the Orion Queen.
Although I found almost all of the stories entertaining, I have to say that my favorites were those with premonitions. For instance, in Five Candles on a Coffin, where the main character sees her own coffin the day before she dies or in Without Beth where Eliza has the odd thought that she might have to live without her twin sister Beth. Not long after Beth dies of Meningitis.
