Andrew Martin's Ghoul Britannia was fun but lightweight - a brief ramble through the British love affair with ghost stories, and how they've changed over the years. TBH it felt more a collect set of blog posts or Fortean Times articles than a single book. Then there's a ghost story at the end, which is somewhat trumped by having had all Martin's points about the formula of the ghost story explained in the rest of the book, before he puts them all to use. As a result you notice more of the formula than feel the story.
