    " Carnacki is really a cypher, and he is kind of a blowhard cypher on top of it. "Come to my house and let me tell (TELL, for crying out loud!) you of my exploits. And now get out!" Really? I guess this is not so much about the character anyway and really more about turn-of-the-century "scares," but I sort of think I'm not supposed to wish the Ghost Finder to get sucked into hell by the gaseous hands emanating from the corner of the room. "

    " I wanted to like this, and I kind of like the idea, but the stories are just too formulaic, and a good part of the formula exists for no good reason. "

    " I love Hodgson. This is his most accessible. Seems like perfect movie fodder. "

    " Formulaic. Too bad the supernatural principles aren't elaborated upon. The hints that are dropped at the larger, more arcane world are interesting and left me wanting more. A fun evening read but no more, IMHO. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clockwerk | 8/9/2013

    " More fun with the mythos set. Carnacki the Ghost Finder is the template from which springs all other urban fantasy series, such as the Dresden files, Sooki Stackhouse, and many more. Certainly have an older feel, but worth the read to get an idea from whence all those tropes came from. "

    " I read the Whistling Room- kind of an spooky tale. I enjoy reading older books like this and will definitely continue. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 7/25/2011

    " I wish Hodgson had written more of these. He's good at describing things that are viscerally disturbing, but without any gore or much violence. "

    " The funky adventures of ghost hunter Carnacki and his attempts to confront the so-called "supernatural" with the scepticism of science. In the public domain, with a free electronic copy available here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marisa | 3/14/2011

    " These are good horror stories, and much more readable than The Nightland. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 3/7/2011

    " I read these stories after seeing that Carnacki was one of the latest characters in Alan Moore's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. The short stories are a cross between Edgar Allen Poe's Dupin detective stories and Poe's gothic horror stories, and are an interesting quick read. "

    " He had me at "electric pentacle." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Edward | 10/24/2009

    " Unintentionally silly at times, but with tongue in cheek it's not a bad piece of weird fiction on the whole. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael | 8/17/2009

    " tales of the supernatural.all rather dull and dated "
