Since it is the season of Halloween, and people are citing their favourite ghost/ horror/ supernatural stories, I was reminded of one such that I read years ago: W.W. Jacobs' The Monkey's Paw. I was pleased to see John at Pretty Sinister Books refer to the story in a review of his. Since I wanted to read John's take on the story, I requested him to post an article on it. He very graciously complied.
If you are familiar with John's blog than you know for sure that he writes extremely interesting articles and this one is no exception. And if you are not, than I suggest you become acquainted. Go on, click on the link!
