This collection of mystical stories is useful both for historical curiosity and as an example of horror fiction. The stories provide the readers with a window into those days when people had different customs and traditions especially in celebrating Halloween. Some of the stories are rather funny than mystical. But almost all of them give the readers the feeling of fear which is not as much important as the reason for its occurrence. The aim of this collection is not just to entertain but also to form a great emotional sense of something unusual and unnatural. Various external, visible and mystical incarnations of inner fear fill this book. Together with the authors the readers will be able to analyze the process of development of human fear from the psychological point of view. Ghosts and different supernatural phenomena will follow you from the beginning till the very end.
