Roberston Davies and ghost stories? Say no more! I don't know why I expected something absolutely bone chilling considering his normal fare but what I got was better. Eighteen ghost stories he told to U of T students - one of my alma maters - and all of them are quirky and funny and erudite just as much as the rest of his work. I had a great time reading them and had to giggle and smirk a bit as his very Canadian references. As per usual I cannot praise Davies enough, he is one of my favourite writers and I think he needs far more exposure than just to Canadians.

If you like the idea of a haunted university with mostly benign ghosts. Famous leaders, academics, and others abound and all are very funny. It would have been great to hear these in person. I wonder if a recording exists anywhere...
