Unexpectedly disappointing

What did you like best about 20th Century Ghosts (Volume 2)? What did you like least?

With so many good compilations out there I expecting this to be something good from a major player like Joe Hill . Sadly it was not. Although the concepts were good the storys fell flat.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Non of the collection are scary and only a few are spooky. One or two are good but the rest are a disappointment. Weak and not very engaging.

Any additional comments?

I was essentially bored for most of it. There are so many good short story collections out there, try one of them.
