Story Summary

Every year Nathan gets a book from his Uncle Jonathan for Christmas and this year was no exception. However, this year it wasn't a beautiful edition of Huck Finn or Treasure Island, it was a beat-up old collections of ghost stories. Angered at first, Nathan begins to realize what an amazing book it is when the stories themselves begin to take on a life of their own, changing and even disappearing.
