    1. Not bad collection of tales that are fun to read by the wintry fireside. A blend of classic and newer writers. Collection is held back by a few mediocre stories and three stories that in my opinion are just misplaced, didn't belong in this themed anthology. I think the editor was trying to send some message about the potential breadth of the genre and lost track of what it was all about. Especially notable offerings by Sarah Pinborough, Muriel Gray, Nancy Kilpatrick, and Lisa Tuttle. Great cover [...]


    2. The Mammoth Book of Ghost Stories by Women is an anthology you have to own. One by one, I found the stories mentioned to be breathtakingly unique, and each of them deal with the subject of ‘ghosts’ in their own, distinct way. Some stories are pure horror, spine-chilling, offering goosebumps. Others are more mundane, and talk about the departure of loved ones. Others are set in a purely fictional world, with necromancers and warlocks.Because of the length and the diversity of this anthology, [...]


    3. Rating would be 3 1/2 stars if I had the option to give that here on Good Reads. This is a solid collection of ghost stories by American and British women writing in English. Featuring a mix of old and new, thematically there's something for almost everyone, with an especially strong selection of haunted house type tales. I would have liked to see more diversity in setting and some stories by Anglophone authors from outside the US and UK, as well as some translated works if this was really meant [...]


    4. Uneven, though generally it was arranged from the weakest stories to the strongest. The first few stories were so weak that I wondered if this was all that was expected of women. "Field of the Dead" started strong and the action was gripping and fun. The punchline, however, was disappointing at best, and, frankly, a plot hole to my mind. How would the village audience have seen Thom the child mummer given what we discover of him at the end? But I could almost forgive it since the world Kim Lakin [...]


    5. A collection of short stories centered on ghosts, written by women from the 18oos all the way to present time. Now, them being ghost stories does not mean they're all horror stories. Seeing as I was looking for horror stories when I bought this, I must admit I was a little disappointed, but that's not the stories' fault. There are some real gems in here, and I didn't read anything that I didn't enjoy at some level. Just keep in mind that some of these stories will be pure fantasy, or steampunk, [...]


    6. I found this really disappointing. Even the stories by authors I usually enjoy were bland and uninspired. I've been reading a lot (like really a lot) of horror this year, and I don't understand why the editor chose these stories, as they're nowhere near the best ghost stories by women out there.


    7. Y a vraiment des hauts et des bas dans cette anthologie, mais dans l'ensemble les plus faibles sont vraiment dans la première moitié (je ne comprends toujours pas ce que fait l'histoire de The ninth witch là dedans), mais les nouvelles de la deuxième moitié sont vraiment chouettes, ce qui rattrape bien.


    8. Story 1; I liked the descriptive language. The way she described the ghosts and the pipe. Loved the setting. Story 2; I loved how in the end both turned out to be ghosts and that the theme of the story was to contact an already dead loved one who would take the narrator to the other side. Loved the Midwest setting and tone/language.Story 3; this one didn’t interest me as much as the first two but it was still good no less. The idea of him trying to harm himself to get the attention of his wife [...]

    10. I went into this expecting horror, but it isn't, they're just ghost stories. A bit hit and miss, but overall an enjoyable reading experience.


    11. A bit of hit and miss collection with some good stories and others that failed to impress. My favourite was Edith Wharton's 1910 story, Afterward. Chilling and creepy, it was the story that really lingered. Others that resonated with me include God Grant that she Lie Still, The Ninth Witch and Sister, Shhh. I really enjoyed the inclusion of he older stories. Although their old fashioned style made them a little difficult to read, it was great to see the roots of ghost story writing and how write [...]


    12. This is an extremely good collection of supernatural stories, and would be ideal for a reader new to this genre. The editor had worked really hard to show a good time span of this genre in particular, and t shows. There are some classic stories here which I always enjoy reading, but the standouts for me within the newer stories were "The Madam Of The Narrow Houses" by Caitlin R Kiernan (just beautifully written and a really interesting subject matter) and "Collect Call" by Sarah Pinborough (a YA [...]


    13. I read this on Kindle on my lunch breaks whenever I got the chance, which is the best way to read short stories I think. Each story is very different from the last and I liked all but two or three of them. Some were supernatural rather than spooky. Others were traditional gothic ghost tales. I especially love haunted houses and ghostly children. This book has plenty of those. I'll probably read it again and just skip over the stories I didn't like.


    14. As a ghost stories loving person this book to me was boring. A few stories made me happy to have bought this book but I have to say they were few. If you want a spine chilling book then stick to H.P. Lovecraft or Poe. The only story that I would recommend is Let Loose by Mary Cholmondeley whose writting reminds me of a classic. I recommend you go to a B&N and read a few stories there without buying the book


    15. The perks of these novels with short stories is you can pick and choose the authors you want to read and stay away from the ones that don't seem so interesting!!! I did flip through most of them and some of them just didn't catch me fast enough for being a short story, but the other ones were quite good!


    16. Some of these stories were so great the paranormal world hid such gems due to the gender factor. What a disgraceful shame. Still we are fortunate in these times to dig them out of hiding and re publish them. There were one or two rather dull tales. But the rest either completely scared me or had me guessing and questioning the tale hours later. LOVED it!!!!


    17. Some really good stories, some by modern writers and other older more classic victorian stories. Those victorians knew how to set up the scene, but it helps if there's candlelight.However there seem to be a couple of stories where it was difficult to spot the ghost.Read this at the hospital at night, a place where I've heard of quite a few stories, but it's not surprising.


    18. It was alright. Some of the stories were more fantasy than ghost story, especially the last one. There were a couple that I liked, but most of them don't really stand out.


    19. Every single one of my ghost story collections has the Old Nurse's Tale and The Phantom Coach. Both are good stories, but there must be a limit to how many collections these can be in.


    20. A wonderful selection of stories, old and new. From sad to fanciful, each one was worthwhile, and will be on my list to re-read in the future.


    21. I like these type of stories because it is an excellent way to find a new author I have not read before and look for her books. I obtain this book from the library. A great selection of writers.


    22. I really enjoyed the Victorian and Edwardian ghost stories. some of the newer authors have apparently tried to redefine the meaning of a ghost story. overall I enjoyed this book.


    23. The first, ghostbuster and action-packed story with all its useless extra stuff killed my interest, the uninspired beginning of the second story nailed the coffin.
