With sixteen paranormal tales, Weird Women Vol 2 is sure to contain something that will enthrall you.
Famous female writers, like Harriet Beecher Stowe, George Eliot, Edith Wharton, and Zora Neale Hurston are included among the forgotten female authors. The tales vary in length from eight to forty-four pages. The topics are as varied as ghosts and relationships.
My two favorite stories illustrate these topics. They are Let Loose and Spunk. Let Loose is the creepy little story of why one man always wears high starched collars that includes an ancient crypt and an evil dead man. In Spunk, a cocky man takes what he wants from life including other men’s wives. But, after killing a cuckold, he has to deal with the dead man’s spirit that has returned in an unusual form. The dialog reads like a poem. It is beautiful.
If you want to read some old-fashioned horror tales that still have the power to frighten, get a copy of Weird Women Vol 2. You won’t regret it. 4 stars!
Thanks to Pegasus Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
