This is a good collection of ghost stories and superstitions from Wales, though by no means scholarly. There are tales of terror from Welsh authors (Arthur Machen being the author best known to me), excerpts from old folklore accounts (including ghost stories), and brief tidbits of information on types of goblins and other faerie-type folk. I'd give it 3.5 stars really, rather than 4, but it is an enjoyable read. ( )

you know what? this isn't half bad. i didn't have much hope considering the cover but - really there's only a couple of duffers here. and even then they're not the sort of duffers that make you want to hurl the book across the room in anger - chetwynd hayes himself goes a bit overboard on the bodice ripping, and a mate of his does a bit of twee nonsense about gold mines, but otherwise... pretty good. even the lesser stories have a couple of striking images and ideas. and at the book's very best - i particularly liked the john christopher story and the glyn jones' pieces - it's excellent. let's put it this way, machen's "the shining pyramid" - which is easily the best thing in it - does not feel entirely out of place with the rest of the book. i enjoyed this a lot. AND it made me want to move to wales even more... ( )
