Just started An English Ghost Story. Easy read so far. Will be back if I persevere.
Is that the recent-ish Titan edition? Think I saw a copy in the library recently but have too many Newman's languishing on the to read/ complete pile.
From the first, I set myself against "literature"; the story was the thing, and no amount of style could persuade me to select a story that lacked genuine, unadulterated horror. For those who wanted something high-brow there was plenty.

...but not quite mad enough. I'm not a huge ghost story buff, but do enjoy Mr Newman's stuff. This is a bit of a departure for him, but very atmospheric and well told. A little anti-climactic but that perhaps fits the toned down nature of the subject matter.
