Robertson Davies first hit upon the notion of writing ghost stories when he joined the University of Toronto’s Massey College as a master. A tradition quickly became established and, for 18 years, Davies delighted and amused the college’s annual Gaudy Night guests with his tales of the supernatural.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Robertson Davies' Ghost Stories I love pretty much everything Robertson Davies wrote but I've always had a particular soft spot for this collection of ghost stories. They're short, light and entertaining, particularly if you had the chance to hear him in speak in real life and can conjure his speaking voice as you read the stories. He was a truly wonderful storyteller.
