Short stories 21-25

The Signalman”, by Charles Dickens. From The Penguin Book of English Short Stories. A typical Victorian creepy story. Well told but too predictable to give one goosebumps.

“Forbidden Things”, by Marcia Muller. From The Mysterious West. A mystery story about a family tragedy, well written but predictable.

“Harvest“, by Gay Longworth. From Big Night Out. A clever retelling of a well-known urban legend. Recommended.

“Lúlli og leiðarhnoðað”, by Þórarinn Eldjárn. From Ó fyrir framan. A fun little story based on a folk-tale phenomenon: a way-finding ball of string.

Tarnhelm”, by Hugh Walpole. From The Midnight Reader. A very good supernatural tale with just the right amount of creepiness. Recommended.
