Ghosts are deceptive things, and you have in your hands a book of them that is a lot bigger than it looks. At first glance it appears to contain a mere twenty-three ghost stories and their accompanying illustrated specters. However, the pages are neatly guillotined so that each story has a separate beginning, middle and end; and each summoned ghost is dissected into head, body and legs (or something akin to legs). The discerning reader can mix and match the body and story parts to summon an almost infinite number of ghosts and their tales: over 10,000, in fact. Given the fluid nature of the spirits of the Dead, and their propensity for decapitating themselves and wearing different guises, this all seems somehow fitting.
