This collection of "spooky" stories was written for and read at the annual gaudy night each year at Massey College, where the author was master for many years. The ghost stories parody, in an affectionate manner, the usual high-flown gothic language in which most ghost stories are told.

Robertson Davies (1913-1995) had three successive careers during the time he became an internationally acclaimed author: actor, publisher, and, finally, professor at the University of Toronto. The author of twelve novels and several volumes of essays and plays, he was the first Canadian to be inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters.From AudioFile:
Offering ghost stories meant to amuse, this collection of thirteen selections originated from "gaudy nights" at Massey College where Davies was Master. Davies himself gives a charming introduction while the stories themselves are enhanced by Christopher Plummer's narration. Plummer's rich, resonant voice enlivens each character--college dons, college ghosts, undergraduates. With subtle accents and a superb use of cadence, Plummer reflects all of Davies's humor and irreverence. This excellent match of reader to material will delight Davies's fans and all lovers of good stories told by a skilled narrator. R.F.W.
