The Ghost of Longthorn Manor and Other Stories by Amy Cross is a collection of short stories published, 18 December 2016. I like collections of short stories because I can carry the collection around at work reading a quick short story whenever spare time appears. This is not that kind of collection. I read the 352-page collection in one session. Each story teases the reader into the next one. Is there a connection that binds all the stories together? There seems to be such a connection except for the last surprising, twisty, possibly stand-alone tale controlled primarily by a writer (who could be Amy Cross). It also takes place in a house which could be Longthorn Manor but in this last story, the house is not such an active participant.
