Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

The (many) ghost stories of Oliver Onions
For tonight's countdown to Halloween post, I will blog again about literature. I recently ordered The Dead of Night: the Ghost Stories of Oliver Onions because I wanted to read more of him. Like for most ghost story writers I know about, I discovered Oliver Onions in The Oxford Book of English Ghost Stories. More precisely, The Cigarette Case, which I have been unable to find online. I want my horror stories collection (which is getting bigger and bigger every year) to be made of full work from these writers and not only anthologies, so I ordered this book in early October. It arrived a few days later and... And I was surprised to find that the book is 657 pages long! Usually, the books of Wordsworth Editions are between 200 and 300 pages long. I don't think I will have time to start reading it this year, I have many horror stories books to finish, but it will be on my reading list for next year. I cannot believe sometimes I am in my late thirties and it took me so long to discover all these authors.
