The Strange Casebook – Syd Moore

ISBN: 9781786075208. October 31st 2018. Oneworld Publications. With thanks to Netgalley for supplying me with a copy.

Enjoy these six short spooktacular stories, inspired by Rosie Strange and Sam Stone’s work at the museum…if you dare! These stories focus on characters that interact with Rosie and Sam in the Essex Witch Museum series and take place across a number of different time frames. Whether it be Rosie’s old relatives, academic George Chin or the residents of Adders Fork – spooky incidents abound at every turn.

I’m not a massive fan of short stories as a rule, but having loved what I’ve read of The Essex Witch mysteries so far, there was no chance I’d miss this.

This collection of stories were perfect! Long enough for me to grow attached to most of the characters, short enough to not feel like it’s dragging on. Each of these stories were unique, yet they each ended on a great note. I totally recommend this collection if you’re after creepy but fun short stories.

I can’t go into too much detail because I don’t want to risk spoiling for anyone, but these stories as a little more depth to the Essex Witch Museum universe. I can’t wait to read more of this world.

I give this collection as whole 4 out of 5 stars.
