SUMMARY µ The Literary Ghost Great Contemporary Ghost Stories â It takes a certain amount of daring for a literary writer to employ a device as powerful and obvious as a ghost and a great deal of talent and self assurance to pull it off The fact that these stories are so different from one another and that no two ghostsIt takes a certain amount of daring for a literary writer to employ a device as powerful and obvious as a ghost and a great deal of talent and self assurance to pull it off The fact that these stories are so different from one another and that no two ghosts in them are alike is a testament to the power of the individual imagination to appropriate established myths without assuming the associated clichés So writes Larry Dark in the introduction to this anthology of expertly crafted ghost stories by such luminaries as Donald Barthelme Paul Bowles A.
